The attorneys for Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz are both maintaining their clients’ innocence after the two men were charged in the scandal regarding the alleged sexual abuse of minors by former coach Jerry Sandusky.
In a statement also released Saturday, Curley’s attorney Caroline Roberto said her client is innocent.
“We will vigorously challenge the charges in court, and we are confident he will be exonerated,” Roberto said in the statement.
Schultz’s attorney, Tom Farrell, also released a statement declaring his client’s innocence.
“We believe in the legal system, and we believe it will vindicate him,” Farrell said in the statement. “We will fight these charges in court, and Gary Schultz will be proven innocent of all of them.”
As we noted earlier, Penn State president Graham Spanier is also standing behind Curley and Schultz.
