Trial, hearing delayed for Penn St administrators

Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Judges are postponing a preliminary hearing and a separate trial for former Penn State administrators accused of covering up the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

Court orders issued Wednesday mean a preliminary hearing won't be held as planned next week for the school's former president, vice president and athletic director. A January trial for two of them is also on hold.

A district judge in the Harrisburg suburbs decided to put off the preliminary hearing for Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. A county judge in Harrisburg made a similar decision not to start the trial of Curley and Schultz on some of the charges on Jan. 7.

New dates weren't announced.

The three deny the allegations that include perjury, obstruction, conspiracy and failure to properly report suspected abuse.
