Judge weighs dismissal of Penn State ex-officials’ charges
HARRISBURG, Pa. — The new judge overseeing the long-delayed criminal proceedings against three former high-ranking Penn State administrators heard arguments Thursday about whether the remaining charges should be thrown out.
The hearing in Harrisburg before Judge John Boccabella could be the prelude to trial or the dismissal the charges in the case that began nearly five year ago. Boccabella didn’t indicate when he will rule.
All three defendants were in court: the school’s former president Graham Spanier, still a faculty member; former athletic director Tim Curley, now retired; and former vice president Gary Schultz, also retired.
