Former Penn State Administrators File New Court Documents
Attorneys for the three former Penn State administrators charged with perjury filed new court documents today, asking the Attorney General's office for multiple pieces of information to help them build their case.
Attorneys for former Penn State President Graham Spanier, former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz all filed similar documents Friday in Dauphin County Court for a Bill of Particulars. All three are charged with covering up allegations of child sex abuse against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexually abusing children he met through his charity, The Second Mile. He is currently serving a sentence of 30 to 60 years.
The attorneys are asking for information that would show the administrators violated their obligation to supervise the children Sandusky was convicted of abusing.
The defense is asking for the identities of the various children under 18 who the defendants were to have supervised. The defense also is asking for the law, regulation or policy identifying the defendants as people supervising the welfare of children.
Also in the documents, the defense is also asking for when the child abuse the defendants failed to investigate happen, and how the defendants mislead the grand jury.
The defense is also asking the Attorney General's office when exactly the three conspired to engage in any illegal conduct in relation to Sandusky.
A pretrial hearing will be held at Centre County Court on Oct. 29. No trial date has been set and it's considered unlikely a trial could begin before next spring.
