Judge Orders Trial For 2 Penn St. Officials

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A judge says two Penn State officials can be tried on charges of lying to a grand jury in the university's child sex-abuse scandal.

District Judge William Wenner ruled Friday that prosecutors had probable cause to send the case against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz to trial.

Wenner heard testimony against Curley and Schultz on charges they lied to a grand jury and didn't properly report an allegation that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sodomized a boy in a locker room shower in 2002.

Their lawyers maintain the men are innocent, and contest testimony that they were told about the seriousness of the matter.

Sandusky says he's innocent of more than 50 counts of child sex-abuse involving 10 boys over a span of 12 years.

    They were lying to protect the image of Penn State. Don't think their new roomates in prison will be so kind.

    Answer: Hiding due to the shame now and forever associated with his alma mater. He's not so condescending and demeaning now, is he?
