HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania's highest court is turning down a pair of appeals by two of the three former Penn State administrators facing criminal charges for an alleged cover-up of child abuse complaints against Jerry Sandusky.
The state Supreme Court late Friday issued a pair of unsigned orders that denied petitions for review filed by the school's former vice president, Gary Schultz, and former athletic director, Tim Curley.
The court orders said the justices aren't preventing the two men from raising the same issue during their criminal prosecution.
The two men appealed after the grand jury supervisory judge two months ago ruled he didn't have jurisdiction to consider their request to have charges thrown out.
The attorney general's office isn't commenting.
Pennsylvania driver's licenses that are compliant with tougher federal anti-terrorism standards should be available in early 2019, according to Gov. Tom Wolf's office.Read More »
