Ex-officals charged

 

Penn State’s ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges accusing them of a cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Prosecutors showed enough evidence during a two-day preliminary hearing to warrant a full criminal court trial for ex-President Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, Judge William Wenner concluded. State prosecutors allege the three men failed to tell police about sexual abuse allegations involving Sandusky and then tried to cover up what they knew about it. The three were charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. – AP
