HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) – Court proceedings for former Penn State officials charged in an alleged cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky scandal have been postponed.

Then athletic director Tim Curley and former Penn State VP Gary Schultz were charged with perjury more than a year ago. Last month, additional charges were filed against Schultz and Curley at the same time numerous charges were brought against former Penn State President Graham Spanier. All three men are now charged with perjury, obstruction and other offenses.

A preliminary hearing for all three had been scheduled in a Harrisburg courtroom next week. That hearing has now been put on hold, while a January trial that had been scheduled for Schultz and Curley has also been postponed.

New dates have not been announced.

The state attorney general has accused the three men of a “conspiracy of silence” with regard to the actions of Jerry Sandusky.
