More than five years after the Jerry Sandusky scandal surfaced at Penn State, three former university administrators are finally set to stand trial.
A trial has been set for former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz, according to the Associated Press. The three men are all being charged with endangering the welfare of children.
Jury selection is set to being March 20 in Harrisburg, Pa., according to the report.
The charges stem from a grand jury investigation into Sandusky, who was effectively given a life prison sentence in 2012 after being convicted of child sexual abuse. Sandusky, Penn State’s longtime defensive coordinator, retired in 1999.
According to the Associated Press, Curley and Schultz were arrested in 2011, when the grand jury report first came out. They were initially arraigned on charges of perjury and failure to report under the state’s child services protection law. Spanier was arrested in 2012, according to the AP.
All three, along with former coach Joe Paterno, were ousted from their positions at Penn State in the wake of the scandal.
