HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s highest court is turning down a pair of appeals by two of the three former Penn State administrators facing criminal charges alleging they covered up child abuse complaints against former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
The state Supreme Court late Friday issued a pair of unsigned orders that denied petitions for review filed by former university vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley.
The court orders say the justices aren’t preventing the two men from raising the same issue during their criminal prosecution.
The two men appealed after the grand jury supervisory judge two months ago ruled he didn’t have jurisdiction to consider their request to have charges thrown out. They deny the charges against them.
The attorney general’s office isn’t commenting.
Sandusky was convicted of molesting boys but maintains his innocence.
