Penn State AD Charged with Perjury

Officials contend Penn State AD Tim Curley was not truthful during his testimony to the Sandusky grand jury. University official Gary Schultz also was charged.

The sex abuse against minors charges filed against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky are already having significant repercussions within the school's athletic department.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office, through its website, announced Saturday that Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and university senior administrator Gary Schultz had been charged with perjury and failure to report suspected child abuse.

The charges stem from testimony the two made to a grand jury investigating the Sandusky case.

Sandusky was arraigned Saturday in Centre County Saturday and released on $100,000 unsecured bail. He was ordered to have no contact with minors.

The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported that Curley and Schultz would turn themselves in to officials in Harrisburg on Monday. They are being prosecuted in Dauphin County.

Curley has been athletic director at Penn State since 1993.
