Two Penn State Officials Under Investigation For Sexual Abuse
According to State Attorney General Linda Kelly, Tim Curely, Penn State's athletic director and Gary Schultz, vice president for finances and business knew about the ongoing sexual abuse and neglected to contact the police as required by state law.
Sandusky, who was released on $100,000 bail Saturday, is facing 40 criminal counts. Sandusky allegedly used The Second Mile--a at-risk youth program he developed--to victimized young students between ages 10-15 reported the Associated Press.
From the Associated Press:
The allegations against Sandusky, who started The Second Mile in 1977, range from sexual advances to touching to oral and anal sex.
Building on Sandusky's charges, Kelly said a graduate assistant on campus reported seeing a Sandusky sexual assault young boy naked in the shower room with in 2002.
More from the Associated Press:
Curley and Schultz met with the graduate assistant about a week and a half later, Kelly said.
"Despite a powerful eyewitness statement about the sexual assault of a child, this incident was not reported to any law enforcement or child protective agency, as required by Pennsylvania law," Kelly said.
There's no indication that anyone at school attempted to find the boy or follow up with the witness, she said.
If found guilty, Curley and Schultz may face up to seven years in prison and a fine of $15,000. The legal fees for the two men are being paid by Penn State because the allegations concern their responsibilities as university staff.
Curley, Schultz and Sandusky all maintain their innocence. The preliminary hearing set for Wednesday is said to be delayed reported the Associated Press.
Famed winningiest coach Joe Paterno of Division I football, who has spent decades developing Penn State's successful team, was not mentioned in any wrongdoing.
