Reports: Schultz Kept “Secret File” on Sandusky

Gary Schultz is in trouble.

KDKA-TV out of Pittsburgh is reporting that Gary Schultz, former Penn State Vice President of Finance and Business, kept a “secret file with allegations regarding Sandusky and child abuse.” This report comes from new documents obtained by the Attorney General.

The following is a statement provided by the Attorney General’s office, as reported by KDKA-TV:

“Only recently was the commonwealth provided with a file containing documents relating to incidents involving Sandusky. The file was created, maintained and possessed by Schultz. Documents in that file are inconsistent with statements by Schultz and his co-defendant, Curley, to the Grand Jury.

“Also, the commonwealth has come into possession of computer data (again, subpoenaed long ago but not received from PSU until after the charges had been filed in this case) in the form of e-mails between Schultz, Curley and others that contradict their testimony before the Grand Jury.”

The news comes one day after a 2001 email exchange revealed that Graham Spanier told Schultz that it would be “humane” to Sandusky to not involve legal authorities in the 2001 investigation involving Victim 2.

Gary Schultz’s position gave him oversight of the University Park police department until he retired in 2009. After Mike McQueary notified him of the 2001 shower incident in the Lasch building, he never reported it to the police department he oversaw, despite prior knowledge of the 1998 investigation of Jerry Sandusky. Gary Schultz faces perjury and failure to report charges. His trial has not yet been scheduled.
