Ex-Penn State administrators get jail time

Spanier, Curley and Schultz were implicated in the Sandusky case in 2011 and accused of keeping information about a reported 2001 sex assault from police and child welfare officials.
Former Penn State president Graham Spanier was sentenced Friday to two months in jail on child endangerment charges. The other two, the university's former vice president and athletic director, both received similar sentences with less time under house arrest. He will serve two months in jail, followed by house arrest and also pay a $5,000 fine, according to Grace.
Attorney General Josh Shapiro, in a sentencing memorandum, asked that Spanier be jailed for up to 12 months, saying he ignored the 2001 report to protect his personal reputation.
"He was a complete and utter failure as a leader when it mattered the most", Ditka said at Friday's hearing.
Prosecutors said all three administrators failed to tell authorities after they had reasonable suspicion that Sandusky, then the football team's defensive coordinator, molested a child.
For almost six years, the case has roiled Penn State and its supporters, stirring conversations and changes across college campuses and their athletic programs.
In sentencing all three men for child endangerment, Judge John Boccabella in Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas also harshly criticized the late, revered football coach Joe Paterno for failing to alert authorities.
He will also serve two years probation and was sentenced to a $7,500 fine, the costs of prosecution and 200 hours of community service.
The charges against them date back to a 2001 incident in which former football assistant coach Mike McQueary witnessed Sandusky behaving inappropriately with a young boy in a Penn State locker room shower. "I was unimpressed by your testimony during the trial", the judge said.
Penn State's football program suffered heavy sanctions from the NCAA, and the university has paid out almost a quarter-billion dollars in fines, court verdicts, settlements and other costs.
Prosecutors said Curley and Schultz never called the police, even though they knew the accusations were similar to the allegations in the 1998 report. Instead, Boccabella noted, Spanier, Curley and Schultz made a decision to do nothing. She said his inaction "allowed children to be harmed".
"I pleaded guilty because I felt like I should have done more", Curley said.
