AG seeks 1 trial for 3 from Penn State
The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office wants to hold one trial for three former Pennsylvania State University officials charged with covering up reports that Jerry Sandusky was molesting children, according to court filings.
Former university president Graham B. Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley, and retired assistant vice president Gary Schultz are charged with perjury, failure to report abuse, and other offenses related to their involvement in the investigation into Sandusky, who was ultimately convicted of child sex abuse.
In a filing in Dauphin County Court, the Attorney General's Office indicated the charges against the three were the same. No trial is expected until next year.
The three waived their formal arraignment, which had been set for Friday in Dauphin County Court.
