Tim Curley Arrested On Perjury Charges In Jerry Sandusky Coverup Case

Penn St. Nittany Lions athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz have surrendered to police on charges of perjury and failure to report abuse, the Associated Press has reported. Curley was charged for his failure to notify law enforcement about allegations raised against then-defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

The AD was placed on administrative leave Sunday night after an emergency meeting of the university's board of trustees. There will be another trustees meeting on Friday, which will be attended by Pennsylvania's governor.

Both Curley and Schultz had the chance to make it known that Sandusky had been accused of molesting a child on Penn State's campus. In 1998, an in-house investigation into another allegation against Sandusky didn't make it beyond campus walls.

Football coach Joe Paterno has not been charged and is not a target, the state's attorney general has announced.
