Hours after resigning, two Penn State officials are facing arraignment Monday on charges they perjured themselves before a grand jury and neglected to report properly suspected child abuse.
Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz were charged after an investigation of former defense coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Curley and Schultz have denied any involvement.
Sandusky has been charged with sexually abusing eight boys over a period of 15 years. He retired in 1999 but continued to use the school's facilities for his work with at-risk kids.
The 67-year-old was arrested Saturday and released on $100,000 bail after being arraigned on 40 criminal counts.
The case has rocked the State College campus town.
"The fact that someone we thought we knew might have harmed young people to this extent is deeply troubling," under head football coach Joe Paterno said. Paterno is not considered a suspect.
"If this is true, we were all fooled, along with scores of professionals trained in such things, and we grieve for the victims and their families," he added. "They are in our prayers."
