Penn State athletic director Tim Curley was charged with perjury and failure to report as part of an investigation into Jerry Sandusky, the school's former defensive coordinator who was indicted Friday on felony sex abuse charges, according to the Associated Press:
State prosecutors said Sandusky, 67, of State College, was arrested Saturday. Curley, 57, and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz, 62, both of Boalsburg, were expected to turn themselves in Monday in Harrisburg, according to the attorney general's office. Schultz's position includes oversight of the university's police department.
Sandusky's indictment includes 40 counts, with allegations of incidents starting in 1996 and ending in 2005. Sandusky retired from Penn State in 1999, devoting his time to The Second Mile, a charity he founded in 1977. A grand jury investigating Sandusky heard testimony in March from Curley and Schultz, among others.
According to the charity's official site, The Second Mile is "a statewide non-profit organization for children who need additional support and who would benefit from positive human contact. The Second Mile plans, organizes, and offers activities and programs for children - and adults who work with them - to promote self-confidence as well as physical, academic, and personal success."
A spokesman for Penn State's athletic department had no immediate comment, the AP reports.
