HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Trial may be months away for two Penn State administrators charged with mishandling a 2001 sex abuse complaint regarding Jerry Sandusky and lying to a grand jury about it.

But testimony at Sandusky’s recent criminal trial, the former assistant football coach’s acquittal on one of the counts and leaked decade-old email traffic could have legal implications for the two administrators, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

A fresh court motion also provides a glimpse into the defense strategy for Schultz, the university’s now-retired vice president for business and finance, and Curley, who is currently on leave as athletic director.

Meanwhile, pleas from Joe Paterno’s family for the release of more information raise the possibility that at trial the now-dead Hall of Fame coach might be blamed for not doing more to stop Sandusky. The beloved coach was fired soon after Sandusky’s arrest.

Schultz, 62, and Curley, 58, both of Boalsburg, deny the allegations against them and have asked a judge to dismiss the charges. They both remain free pending trial, and a scheduling conference with Judge Todd Hoover is planned for July 11.
