Penn State officials surrender in coach's abuse case

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz
and Athletic Director Tim Curley have surrendered for an
arraignment on charges of perjury and failure to report abuse.
Schultz, the school's senior vice president for business and
finance, and Curley are making their first court appearances Monday
afternoon in Harrisburg.
They are accused of failing to alert police to complaints that
former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing
boys. They are also charged with lying to a state grand jury
investigating the complaints.
Lawyers for the 57-year-old Curley and 62-year-old Schultz will
seek to have the charges dismissed.
Authorities accused Sandusky of sexually abusing eight boys over
15 years through his charity for at-risk youth.
Both Curley and Schultz stepped down after a Sunday night
meeting of university trustees.
