Ex-Penn State Officials Plead Guilty To Child Endangerment

Former members of the Penn State administration continue to find themselves immersed in the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. On Monday, that led to two prominent ex-officials entering guilty pleas.

According to a report from Penn Live, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president Gary Schultz pleaded guilty to child endangerment.

The guilty pleas come as part of an agreement that could lead the two to testify against former Penn State president Graham Spanier.

Curley and Schultz also face up to five years in prison and a fine of $10,000 for the charges.

The report indicates the agreement did not specify how serious the sentencing for each man will be.

Curly and Schultz are guilty of not reporting the abuse of children to proper officials after former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary informed Joe Paterno about seeing Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in the shower inside of the football facility.

Paterno then relayed the news to Curley, but it never was passed on to law enforcement officials.
