Former Penn State administrators sentenced to jail time in Sandusky case

Three former Penn State administrators are going to jail for their part in the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State. 

Former president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley were sentenced on Friday on child endangerment charges, according to the Associated Press...

Former President Graham Spanier, 68, was sentenced to four to 12 months, with the first two in jail and the rest under house arrest. He was convicted of child endangerment.

Former athletic director Tim Curley, 63, received a sentence of seven to 23 months, with three in jail. Former vice president Gary Schultz, 67, was given six to 23 months, with two months behind bars. They pleaded guilty to child endangerment.

''It really sickens me to think I might have played a part in children being hurt," Schultz said. 

The sentencing comes about five and a half years after Sandusky, a longtime Penn State assistant, was indicted for child molestation. Sandusky is serving 30-to-60 years in prison.

The trio of former admins will begin their respective sentences on July 15.
