HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Sentencing has been scheduled for three former top officials at Penn State University who were convicted of child endangerment in the Jerry Sandusky molestation scandal.
Curley and Schultz pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment. Spanier went to trial and was convicted in March. His lawyer said he will appeal.
The convictions stem from their handling of a 2001 complaint about Sandusky apparently molesting a boy in a school shower.
The administrators didn’t report the encounter involving the ex-assistant football coach to police or child-welfare authorities.
Sandusky was arrested a decade later. He is serving up to 60 years in prison for sexually abusing 10 boys but is appealing.
