HARRISBURG, Pa. – The criminal case of former Penn State administrators accused of covering up Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse allegations could soon be under consideration by Pennsylvania's highest court.
Lawyers for former athletic director Tim Curley filed a request with the Supreme Court on Thursday asking it to review a county judge's decision last month. That decision rejected Curley's claim his rights to legal counsel were violated during grand jury proceedings.
Curley is awaiting trial with former president Graham Spanier (SPAN'-yur) and former vice president Gary Schultz on charges including perjury, obstruction and conspiracy.
Curley and Schultz also are asking the lower-level Superior Court to consider the same types of claims. Spanier's attorney says she plans to make similar filings but they'll be done under seal.
Sandusky was convicted of abusing 10 boys and is in prison but maintains his innocence.
