Former Penn State officials start jail terms
Two former high-ranking Penn State administrators began jail sentences Saturday morning for how they responded to a 2001 complaint about former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky showering with a boy.
Former university vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley turned themselves in, said Lt. Michael Woods of the Centre County Correctional Facility. Wood said he was not authorized to release any other details from the jail in Bellefonte, Pa.
Schultz and Curley pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment in March.
Curley, 63, must serve three months in jail, while Schultz, 67, has two months behind bars.
Former Penn State president Graham Spanier, 68, was convicted of the same offense and faces two months in jail. Spanier is free on bail while he appeals to Superior Court.
The three men received a complaint from a graduate assistant football coach in February 2001 who said he saw Sandusky appear to sexually abuse a boy in a team shower. They told Sandusky not to bring children onto campus anymore, but prosecutors said the administrators had no plan to enforce that rule.
