Former Penn State execs face hearing in Sandusky sex-abuse scandal

University’s president and two others are accused of covering up the scandal

Three ex-executives from the Pennsylvania State University are heading to court today so a judge can begin to decide if they were involved in covering up early reports that a former assistant football coach was molesting children.

Former Penn State President Graham Spanier, former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Senior Vice President Gary Schultz are accused of covering up reports that Assistant Football Coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused one child, which allowed the now-convicted child molester to continue to abuse children for years. The university fired Spanier and placed Curley on administrative leave. Schultz retired. Sandusky is serving a minimum of 30 years for his crimes.
