Former Penn State Officials Ask Sandusky-Related Charges Be Dismissed

(Harrisburg, PA) -- Three former Penn State officials accused of covering up the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal are asking a Pennsylvania judge to toss out the charges against them. Former university president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former Athletic Director Tim Curley are accused of lying to a grand jury. The three contend the case should be dismissed because their lawyer testified against them. Jerry Sandusky is serving a 30-to-60 year prison sentence after being convicted last year of 45 counts of sexually abusing young boys.
