Two Penn State university officials who are accused of misleading a grand jury in its investigation into child sexual abuse allegations against former coach Jerry Sandusky have stepped down, the university said early Monday morning.
Penn State Athletic Director Timothy Curley, 57, and Gary Schultz, 62, the university’s senior vice president for finance and business, face charges of one count of perjury each.
They stepped down late Sunday after an emergency meeting of the university’s board of trustees.
