Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, the school's senior vice president for business and finance, face arraignment Monday, Nov. 7, 2011, on charges they lied to a grand jury investigating former defense coordinator Jerry Sandusky and failed to properly report suspected child abuse, a case that has left fans reeling. In 2002, State Attorney General Linda Kelly said, a graduate assistant, identified by two people familiar with the investigation as McQueary, saw Sandusky sexually assault a naked boy, estimated to be about 10 years old, in a team locker room shower.
