Trial Of Former PSU President To Begin This Week

HARRISBURG (CBS) — More than five years after the Jerry Sandusky scandal exploded, the trial of the former president of Penn State University, accused in an alleged cover-up in the Sandusky case, is set to begin with jury selection Monday morning in a Harrisburg courtroom.

“Well, with the pleas of Curley and Schultz, I would expect that they would testify as prosecution witnesses,” he said.

It is not known for certain what if any role Curley and Schultz would play in a Spanier trial, but Parry notes that the child endangerment charge to which Curley and Schultz pleaded guilty was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.

In any event, Parry said the guilty pleas can’t be good news for the Spanier defense.
