Penn State bars Sandusky, will pay officials' legal fees

CBSSports.com wire reports

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State says it is barring from campus a former football coach accused of sexually assaulting eight boys, and it is also paying legal costs for two school officials charged with perjury and failing to alert police about what they knew in the case.

Prosecutors say retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight boys over 15 years.

Athletic director Tim Curley and school administrator Gary Schultz are accused of failing to alert police -- as required by law -- after a witness told them he saw Sandusky assaulting a boy in a practice facility shower.

University spokeswoman Lisa Powers says the allegations against Curley and Schultz concern how they fulfilled their responsibilities as employees, so Penn State is paying for their counsel.

Lawyers for all three men say they're innocent.
