Trial, hearing delayed for Penn State administrators

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A hearing scheduled for next week and a trial set for next month were delayed Wednesday for former Penn State administrators accused of a criminal cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

A district judge indicated he needed more time to resolve pending motions before presiding over a preliminary hearing for Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. The Jan. 7 trial of Curley and Schultz for some of the charges they face was also delayed indefinitely.

Curley, the school's athletic director who is on paid leave while the last year of his contract runs out, and Schultz, a retired vice president, were first charged a year ago. Prosecutors added counts against them last month, and charged Spanier, who was forced out as university president last year.

The three deny the allegations, which include perjury, obstruction, conspiracy and failure to properly report suspected abuse.

In a related development, Sandusky has appealed a decision to revoke his $59,000-a-year pension after he was sentenced in October to 30 to 60 years in state prison for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
