PSU president releases statement on Sandusky case

In the wake of the charges against Penn State AD Tim Curley and another administrator for perjury in the investigation of Jerry Sandusky on child sex abuse charges, Penn State president Graham Spanier released the following statement on Penn State Live:

The allegations about a former coach are troubling, and it is appropriate that they be investigated thoroughly. Protecting children requires the utmost vigilance.

With regard to the other presentments, I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support. I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they have handled the allegations about a former University employee. 

Tim Curley and Gary Schultz operate at the highest levels of honesty, integrity and compassion. I am confident the record will show that these charges are groundless and that they conducted themselves professionally and appropriately.

- Graham Spanier
