Shock and disbelief continue to hover over Nittany Nation on the heels of these explosive allegations. Now, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President of Business and Finance Gary Schultz have stepped down in the midst of accusations that they knew of the alleged abuse, and did nothing to stop it.
Investigators say former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight boys over a 15-year period from 1994-2009.
The abuse allegedly happened while Sandusky used Penn State's facilities for his work with "The Second Mile," a foundation he established in 1977 to help 'at-risk' kids.
On the heels of a three-year investigation, a Grand Jury report indicates Curley and Schultz knew of the abuse allegations since at least 2002, and took little to no action.
Tim Curley has requested to be placed on administrative leave to devote time to his defense, while Gary Schultz will step down into retirement, according to a university spokesman. All three men have maintained their innocence.
On Sunday we heard from Sandusky's attorney, Joseph Amendola. He discussed how Sandusky has dealt with the investigation over the last few months. "Imagine living with the thought that you are going to be arrested, you weren't sure when and charged with very serious offenses which are in opposite to all of the things you spent your life doing, helping kids," said Amendola.
The Grand Jury noted Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno reported the allegations to his supervisors immediately after learning of them. He has not been charged.
Curley and Schultz are expected to surrender for arraignment on perjury charges today in Harrisburg.
The state Attorney General has scheduled a news conference today at 1pm.
