HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Three former Penn State administrators have been ordered to stand trial in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

A Pennsylvania district judge on Tuesday ruled that prosecutors had shown enough evidence to warrant a trial for ex-President Graham Spanier (SPAN’-yer), former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley.

State prosecutors allege that the men failed to tell police about sexual abuse allegations involving Sandusky and then tried to cover up what they knew about it.

The men say they’re innocent and weren’t aware of the allegation against Sandusky in 2001. They say they had believed that Sandusky and the boy were engaged in nothing more than horseplay in a university locker room shower.

Sandusky was convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
