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.

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.

Sandusky was indicted on Nov. 4 and turned himself in to police the following day.

Felony perjury charges were also brought against Tim Curley, Penn State's athletic director, and Gary Schultz, the school's vice president for finance and business, who allegedly knew of at least one incident in which Sandusky abused a boy in the Penn State locker room showers. The grand jury report states they did not report the incident to police.

Long-time Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and University President Graham Spanier were ousted Wednesday.
