On November 5, 2011, a 23-page Grand Jury report rocked Penn State to its foundation. As a result of Jerry Sandusky being convicted on 45 of 48 counts sexual abuse against 10 minors and subsequent fallout and alleged coverup by several key school administrators and legendary coach Joe Paterno, these events will forever be a dark stain in the history of our University.
According to Penn Live, Curley claimed that Spanier was copied on an email chain that traced the course of the investigation of the May 1998 child-sex allegation against Jerry Sandusky. However, the former athletic director said he never spoke to Spanier during the investigation.
Opening statements were delivered in the Spanier trial this morning focusing heavily on events Schultz and Curley — specifically events in 1998 in which Spanier was allegedly told of misconduct by Sandusky but did not act.
Former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and former senior vice president Gary Schultz will testify against Graham Spanier. Both men pled guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment charges last week.
