Perjury Charges Against Curley/Schultz Upheld

On Wednesday afternoon, in what could be described as a procedural move, a Dauphin County judge denied motions to have the perjury charges against Gary Schultz and Tim Curley dropped.

Curley seeked dismissal of his perjury charge based upon the fact that the late Joe Paterno — who would have been a key witness in this case — could not testify in front of a jury. Schultz’s motion claimed that the criminal information alleging his perjury is defective. Judge Todd Hoover quashed both of those motions.

Last week, Gary Schultz’s attorney motioned to have his case severed from Curley’s. That motion has not been ruled on yet.

Currently, jury selection for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz is scheduled for January 7th at the Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg. Penn State is still paying for the legal expenses of both Curley and Schultz.
