The two former Penn State administrators who are facing perjury charges related to the Jerry Sandusky case filed motions for discovery Friday.
Attorneys for Tim Curley, who is on leave as director of athletics at the university, and retired senior vice president Gary Schultz filed the motions in Dauphin County Court, where their case is being heard. Details about the filing were not available.
The two are charged with perjury for testimony they gave to the grand jury investigating the allegations of child sex abuse against Sandusky. Assistant football coach Mike
McQueary testified that he told the two about walking into an athletics building shower to find Sandusky naked in a sexual position with a boy.

Both Curley and Schultz have maintained their innocence, and that McQueary did not describe the situation that way to them. The case is being heard in Dauphin County because that is where their testimony before the grand jury took place.
Their attorneys attended the Sandusky trial, which is under way in Bellefonte, to hear McQueary’s testimony. He took the stand Monday and stuck by his testimony.
Curley and Schultz are also facing failure to report child abuse charges. Their attorneys are arguing that all of the charges should be dropped. A trial date has not been scheduled for Curley and Schultz, and the next court date in their case is expected in July.
