earing set for Penn State ex-administrators

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A long-delayed preliminary hearing for three former Penn State administrators accused of covering up sex abuse complaints against ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been scheduled for this month.

A Harrisburg judge announced Tuesday a three-day hearing for Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley will begin July 29.

The three men deny accusations of obstruction, conspiracy and other offenses. The hearing is to determine if prosecutors have enough evidence to send the matter to county court for trial.

Spanier was forced out as university president when Sandusky was arrested in November 2011. Curley is a former athletics director. Schultz is a retired vice president.
