Schultz, a former vice president in charge of university police, and Curley, the athletics director at the time, are charged with lying to a grand jury about a 2001 sex-abuse allegation against Sandusky, a former football coach, and failing to report the incident to police. A judge ruled in December that there was enough evidence for the case to proceed to trial….
