Penn State Scandal: Tim Curley, Gary Schultz To Be Tried Beginning January 7

The trial date for former Penn State employees Tim Curley and Gary Schultz has been announced.

As reported by Laura Nichols of StateCollege.com, the selection of a jury for the trial of former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz has been set for January 7, with the trial beginning immediately after the jury selection.

The two are charged with a summary offense of failure to report and felony perjury for allegedly lying to a grand jury. Schultz, a former vice president of the university, is retired, while Curley, a former athletic director, has been on academic leave since November.

The charges relate to Penn State's concealment of the sexual child abuse committed by Jerry Sandusky on the university's campus. Both Curley and Schultz hope to have the charges dismissed on the grounds that they never lied to a grand jury. The defendants claim that they simply told the grand jury what they knew.
