Sentencing Set for Ex-Penn State Leaders

All three are also poised to have house arrest after the jail time. Former athletic director Tim Curley, 63, was sentenced to seven to 23 months total, with three months in jail, and at least four months under house arrest.

The prosecutors declined to recommend a sentence for Curley or Schultz, but said, "Nothing short of a sentence that includes a period of jail time would be an appropriate sentence for Graham Spanier". The rest of their sentences will be served in house arrest. He must pay the costs of prosecution, a $5,000 fine and was given 200 hours community service.

The judge also criticized the actions of the late head football coach, Joe Paterno, who like the other administrators failed to alert child-welfare authorities or police to the 2001 complaint, but was never charged with a crime.

A graduate coaching assistant told administrators that he saw Sandusky molesting a boy in a football team shower in 2001. The administrators did not report the incident to authorities.

A state court previously dismissed more serious charges of perjury and obstruction after defense attorneys for Shultz, Curley and Spanier successfully argued that Penn State's in-house counsel improperly represented herself before the grand jury.

"The commonwealth's position is that Curley's testimony in the Spanier trial was created to protect those who deserved to share blame with Curley for the decisions that led to the colossal failure to protect children from Sandusky", prosecutors wrote.

Real Madrid, Juventus clash in Champions League final
These are some of the questions we will be itching to have answered when the game kicks off at 7:45 pm, local time tomorrow. Now, they face Real Madrid in Cardiff in a bid to add Champions League glory to a phenomenally dominant period at home.

"The crime that these defendants committed has had a profound effect on the children who were victimized by Jerry Sandusky, deputy attorneys general Laura Ditka and Patrick Schulte wrote".

More than 10 individuals came to speak on behalf of the three men, including spouses, family, friends and business associates.

They reserved their harshest words for Spanier.

Graham Spanier, 68, was Penn State's president from 1995 to 2011.

They all apologized in the courtroom to Sandusky's victims before the sentences were handed down. He said he was accountable for what he did and was prepared to suffer for it.

Spanier, Curley and Schultz have maintained McQueary did not report having witnessed sexual activity.

Gyorko's wife, Karley, had a baby girl on Tuesday, named Brooklyn Ellee. "He's a very even-keeled player", Matheny said. Lynn will bring a nice 2.93 ERA and 1.06 WHIP into a road showdown with the rival Cubs in his next scheduled outing.

"I pleaded guilty because I felt like I should have done more", Curley said.

Spanier said he regretted that "I did not intervene more forcefully".

But Spanier came under criticism for what detractors said was his misperception of the world outside academia and his failure to understand the implications of the Sandusky scandal when it broke. Sentencing guidelines call for up to a year in prison.

Paterno "could have made that phone call without so much as getting his hands dirty".

McQueary testified about how he went to Paterno a day after the shower encounter to discuss what he had seen.
