Trial for Penn State admins to begin in Jan.
HARRISBURG, Pa. - August 17, 2012 (WPVI) -- The trial is scheduled to begin early next year for two former Penn State officials accused of lying to a grand jury and burying an allegation of a child's sexual abuse in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
A judge on Friday ordered jury selection in the trial for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz to begin Jan. 7.
However, Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover was still considering motions by the men's lawyers to throw out the charges. Curley is on leave from the athletic director's post and Schultz is retired from a senior vice president's post.
Curley and Schultz are fighting charges they lied to a grand jury about the extent of their knowledge of the 2001 allegation against Sandusky, and that they failed to report the allegation of suspected child abuse. They have pleaded not guilty.
Sandusky was convicted in June of abusing 10 boys.
On Friday, Hoover also ordered state prosecutors to preserve all their notes from witness interviews, proffer statements and various other documents produced during the course of their investigation into the Sandusky matter.
