Lawyers for former Penn State administrators seek records
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Lawyers for two Penn State administrators charged with perjury and with failing to properly report suspected child abuse want prosecutors to turn over material to help them prepare for their preliminary hearing next month.
Meanwhile, the attorney for Jerry Sandusky says one of the two new cases of alleged sexual abuse was made by a family member of Sandusky, reports PennLive.com.
Attorneys for athletic director Tim Curley and former university vice president Gary Schultz wrote to state prosecutors Tuesday to seek grand jury testimony and other information related to their cases.
They're seeking corroboration of statements by assistant coach Mike McQueary that he told Schultz and Curley he witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sodomizing a 10-year-old boy in the football team showers nine years ago.
The lawyers say that corroboration is required to prove perjury. They also want any information showing McQueary and Sandusky socialized together after the 2002 incident.
The attorney general's office declined to comment.
