The scheduled hearing for former Penn State President Graham Spanier and two high-ranking administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz has been postponed.  According to the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters, the December 13 preliminary hearing has been postponed and has not yet been rescheduled.  The hearing was scheduled for the morning of December 13 before District Judge William Wenner and would have determined if there was enough evidence for the case to move towards a potential trial.

Spanier, Curley and Schultz are all charged with perjury and other crimes for the alleged cover up of what they knew about the exploits of Jerry Sandusky.  Sandusky was found guilty in June of 45 counts of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period while an assistant football coach at Penn State University.  A jury found that Sandusky used his charity the Second Mile to befriend and in many cases sexually assault the victims.

A preliminary hearing date has not yet been set in this case.
