Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, the high-level former Penn State administrators facing perjury charges in the Jerry Sandusky case, are asking the court for more time to file pretrial motions for discovery and inspection.
The deadline for Curley and Schultz to file the motions is Friday, but the two want more time. A pretrial conference in the case also is scheduled for Friday.
That conference is expected to take place behind closed doors in the judge's chambers with prosecutors.
Curley and Schultz are charged in Dauphin County with perjury and failure to report child abuse. The perjury charges come from testimony the two gave to the grand jury investigating Sandusky.

The failure to report charge comes from the allegation that Mike McQueary walked in on Sandusky naked in a shower with a boy. McQueary, now on leave from his job as an assistant coach, testified that he told Joe Paterno and later Curley and Schultz about what he saw.
Curley and Schultz maintain their innocence. They're also asking the court to throw out the failure to report charge, arguing the 10-year statute of limitations has passed.
Prosecutors have changed the date of the incident from March 2002 to February 2001.
Curley is on administrative leave as director of athletics and Schultz is retired as senior vice president.
