Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Curley, Schultz attorneys convene, address pretrial matters as officials await court date

The criminal case against former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz in Dauphin County court remains without a trial date.

The attorneys for former athletic director Tim Curley and retired senior vice president Gary Schultz were in Harrisburg on Wednesday for a 50-minute pretrial conference with Dauphin County President Judge Todd Hoover. 

Pittsburgh lawyer Caroline Roberto, who is representing Curley, said the conference was about scheduling future matters and that the attorneys expect the judge to schedule a pretrial hearing soon.

Curley and Schultz are awaiting trial on perjury and failure to report abuse charges. They are accused of lying to a grand jury investigating Jerry Sandusky and not informing authorities of the report they received from then-grad assistant Mike McQueary in 2001.

Both men maintain they are innocent, and have asked the court to throw out the case against them.

Roberto and Farrell have said they expect the failure to report charge to be dismissed because the 10-year statute of limitations would have expired by the time they were charged in November.

Also Wednesday, Harrisburg-area attorneys George Matangos and Brian Perry entered their appearance with the court as additional counsel for Schultz and Curley, respectively.
