Former Athletic Director Tim Curley Released From Jail

After serving two-and-a-half months in the Centre County Correctional Facility, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley was released from jail October 3 and is now on preparing to serve four months on house arrest and two years of probation, according to court documents obtained by PennLive.

Curley was sentenced along with former university president Graham Spanier and vice president Gary Schultz on child endangerment charges from the Sandusky scandal. Neither of the three are currently in jail, with Spanier appealing his two-month sentence and Schultz out on house arrest after finishing a two-month sentence in September.

The three were initially sentenced on June 2. Curley and Schultz, who both pleaded guilty in March prior to the start of their trials, began jail sentences on July 15. Spanier, who went to trial and was convicted on one misdemeanor count of child endangerment, has not served his sentence after filing for acquittal or new trial in June.
