HARRISBURG – The pretrial conference between the judge, prosecutor and attorneys for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz ended after 45 minutes Wednesday at Dauphin County Courthouse.

Attorneys declined comment on Louis Freeh's report, which will be released at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Curley and Schultz were not at the pretrial conference.

Caroline Roberto, who represents Curley, said the conference was just to establish future hearing dates. A timeline for the trial has not been set.

Tom Farrell, Schultz's attorney had no comment.

Also, attorneys George Matangos and Brian Perry entered their appearance with the court as additional counsel for Schultz and Curley, respectively.

Earlier at 11:40 a.m.

HARRISBURG – The two former Penn State administrators criminally charged with perjury and failure to report have a court date Wednesday at 1 p.m. in the Dauphin County Courthouse.

The proceeding, before President Judge Todd Hoover, is closed to the public and media. 

Former athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz want the case dismissed against them that they lied to a grand jury investigating former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and failed to report suspected child sex abuse. 

Not a lot of movement has been made in the former administrators' case, but Louis Freeh's report, which will be released online at 9 a.m. Thursday, could reveal the facts and circumstances of how the men dealt with reports of Sandusky's actions.

Emails leaked to CNN, NBC and ABC and confirmed by ESPN indicate there was correspondence between Curley, Schultz and former Penn State president Graham Spanier and football coach Joe Paterno.

However, the leaked emails also allege the men decided against going to anyone but Sandusky to discuss the situation.

During Sandusky's trial, it was reported that Schultz may have kept a secret file on Sandusky's actions, though counsel for the former vice president denied it. 

Sandusky, 68, was convicted on June 21 on 45 of 48 charges he sexually abused 10 boys over a 15-year period. He is currently incarcerated in the Centre County Correctional Facility, where he awaits sentencing pending necessary psychological evaluations.
