Curley, Schultz to face trial in Penn State scandal

HARRISBURG — Tim Curley and Gary Schultz will face trial on charges of lying to a grand jury in Penn State child sex-abuse scandal, a judge has ruled.

District Judge William Wenner ruled after a day of testimony that prosecutors had probable cause to send the case against Curley and Schultz to trial.

Wenner heard testimony against Curley and Schultz on charges they lied to a grand jury and didn’t properly report an allegation that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sodomized a boy in a locker room shower in 2002.

The first witness, assistant Penn State football coach Mike McQueary, testified that he told former Coach Joe Paterno and the two university administrators that he saw Sandusky engage in a sexual act with a young boy on the Penn State campus in 2002.

McQueary was on the stand in Dauphin County court for two hours.
