Penn State's Curley, Schultz To Have Day In Court

Posted: Updated:

Two people at the center of the Penn State University child sex abuse scandal will have their day in court Thursday.

Lawyers for Penn State's former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Vice President Gary Schultz will try to have charges against them dismissed.

They're charged with perjury and failure to report child abuse for allegedly covering up allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and lying about it to a grand jury.

They could face up to seven years in prison, if convicted.

Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse in Centre County back in June.

Prosecutors say they didn't need to put all their cards on the table. There are reports they told the judge they had incriminating evidence that didn't even come up.

That trial cost Centre County taxpayers nearly $56,000.

Former Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno apparently sobbed uncontrollably when he was fired last fall.

In an excerpt from his official biography in this month's GQ, Paterno's gruff exterior reportedly shattered in the scandal that cost him his job and legacy.

The author started working on the biography before the Sandusky child sex scandal exploded.

We have more coverage of the Penn State scandal today. FOX 29's Chris O'Connell will be tweeting updates from court as they happen.
