Sandusky Scandal: Prosecutors Say PSU Admins Should Stand Trial For Child Endangerment

Prosecutors say former Penn State administrators should still stand trial for their involvement in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. 

Based on documents made public Wednesday, the prosecution rejected arguments made by Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley that the charges against them should be dismissed.

One of defense’s arguments was the statute of limitations in the case had expired. In their response, the prosecution said that by not reporting the suspected child abuse in 2001, the two-year timeframe never started.

The more serious of the charges, including conspiracy and perjury, were previously dismissed. The men are currently charged with child endangerment, failure to report suspected child abuse, and conspiracy to endanger the welfare of children.
