Three former Penn State administrators will all spend time in jail for their roles in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Former president Graham Spanier, ex-Vice President Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, a former Nittany Lions athletic director, were sentenced Friday, according to PennLive. Spanier went to trial and was convicted, while Schultz and Curley pleaded guilty to a child endangerment charge in March.
Spanier, the former Penn State president, will serve the least amount of jail time of the three. Spanier received a four- to 12-month jail sentence and can serve two months in prison and another two on house arrest, according to the report.
Curley received a seven- to 23-month sentence and can serve four months under house arrest. Schultz netted a similar, six- to 23-month sentence, with four months of house arrest.
All three of the former administrators also will have to serve 200 hours of community service and pay thousands of dollars in fines. Curley and Schultz will owe $5,000 while Spanier needs to pay $7,500.
The charges against them date back to a 2001 incident in which former football assistant coach Mike McQueary witnessed Sandusky behaving inappropriately with a young boy in a Penn State locker room shower. The administrators were charged for not properly reporting the incident.
Sandusky, a longtime Penn State defensive coordinator, was sentenced to an effective life sentence after being found guilty on dozens of child sex abuse charges in 2012.
