Former Penn State Administrators Plead Guilty To Roles In Abuse Scandal

Former Penn State Administrators Plead Guilty To Roles In Abuse Scandal”

"Good morning", said a friendly Gary Schultz as he walked hand-in-hand with his wife toward the Dauphin County Courthouse Monday.

Two former Penn State administrators admitted Monday to mishandling child-sex allegations against Jerry Sandusky, pleading guilty more than five years after the scandal rocked the university and led to the downfall of football coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State ex-President Graham Spanier was also charged in the case.

Sandusky is now serving a prison sentence of 30-60 years after being convicted on over 40 child sexual abuse charges.

Return to YourErie.com for updates. A jury sided with McQueary on his claims that Curley and Schultz misrepresented to him how they would handle his report about Sandusky and that Spanier defamed him in statements of support for Curley and Schultz.

Sentencing for Curley and Schultz is expected to take place within the next 90 days.

One of his sons, Jeffrey Sandusky, was recently arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a minor.

Shortly after Sandusky's arrest, Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno was sacked.

The scandal is one of the most notorious in the history of U.S. college sport and eventually led to the dismissal of Paterno, the revered head of Penn State's football program.

A report commissioned by the university and conducted by former FBI Director Louis Freeh concluded that the beloved coach and the three others hushed up the allegations against Sandusky for fear of bad publicity.

McQueary was awarded a $7.3 million payment from Penn State in a defamation lawsuit. Paterno reported the information to Curley, his supervisor, and Curley and Schultz never reported the incident to the authorities. The NCAA later eased its penalties and restored the wins.

Sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years in prison for his 2012 conviction on charges he molested several boys he met through The Second Mile, a charity he founded.
