Curley/Schultz/Spanier Prelim Transcripts Released, Arraignment Date Set

If you weren’t in the courtroom earlier this week for former Penn State administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curley, and Gary Schultz’s preliminary hearing, you can now read the full transcript of the two-day proceeding online.

The lengthy transcript was released on the Dauphin County website yesterday.

As reporters, we try to do our best relaying the most pertinent information from the proceedings as quickly and as accurately as possible. But nothing can replace actually being there and hearing all the testimony, so for those who are intensely following this case, it’s worth reading over the documents to get the fullest picture.

In all, eight witnesses testified during the preliminary hearing, in which Judge William Wenner immediately held all charges for court at the conclusion.

Arraignment paperwork was also filed yesterday. All three men will be arraigned in Harrisburg on September 20. The defendants will be formally read their criminal charges and enter a plea — presumably not guilty in this case — before a trial date is set.

Click on the PDFs from July 29 and July 30 on this page if you’re interested in reading through the transcript.
