Commonwealth Drops Perjury Charge Against Tim Curley
Yet another serious charge against former administrator Tim Curley was dropped, granted Judge John Boccabella, who’s presiding over the Spanier, Curley, and Schultz court cases. The Commonwealth filed a Motion for Nolle Prosequi (read: charges to be dropped) on Wednesday and Judge Boccabella granted the request Thursday.
This comes in addition to the the obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges dropped in January against all three former administrators. Perjury charges were also dropped against Schultz and Spanier at that time.
Spanier, Curley, and Schultz all still face charges for failure to report suspected abuse and endangering the welfare of children, which are second and first degree misdemeanors. The case could go to trial within the year after Boccabella set pre-trial deadlines in May.
AND NOW, this 13th day of October, 2016, upon consideration of the Commonwealth’s Motion for Nolle Prosequi, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that the Motion is GRANTED.
IT IS ORDERED that Count 1 of the Criminal Information (Perjury, 18 Pa.C.S. 4902(a)) is DISMISSED.
