Schultz told the jurors he also knew of a 1998 investigation involving sexually inappropriate behavior by Sandusky with a boy in the showers the football team used.

But despite his job overseeing campus police, he never reported the 2002 allegations to any authorities, “never sought or received a police report on the 1998 incident and never attempted to learn the identity of the child in the shower in 2002,” the jurors wrote. “No one from the university did so.”

Farrell said Schultz “should have been required only to report it to his supervisor, which he did.”

Schultz reports to Spanier, who testified before the grand jury that Schultz and Curley came to him with a report that a staff member was uncomfortable because he’d seen Sandusky “horsing around” with a boy. Spanier wasn’t charged.

About the perjury charge, Farrell said: “We’re going to have a lot of issues with that, both factual and legal. I think there’s a very strong defense here.”

The university is paying legal costs for Curley and Schultz because the allegations against them concern how they fulfilled their responsibilities as employees, spokeswoman Lisa Powers said.
