Ex-Penn State AD Tim Curley Diagnosed With Cancer, Wants House Arrest


Former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley is looking for some leniency with his jail sentence.

This week, Curley announced he has been diagnosed with incurable lung cancer and liver damage. As a result of his diagnosis, Curley is hoping to serve his seven- to 23-month sentence on house arrest.

Curley was ordered his sentence after being convicted of child endangerment charges for failing to report Sandusky’s abuse to appropriate authorities.

Along with Curley, former Penn State president Graham Spanier was sentenced two months in jail and former Penn State vice president Gary Schulz will also serve two months.
