Penn State’s athletic director and top finance executive are facing charges in the midst of a sex abuse scandal involving a former coach.

Hours after stepping down from their positions, two high-ranking Penn State administrators will be arraigned Monday afternoon on charges they lied to a grand jury investigating former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky was indicted Friday on charges he sexually abused boys over a 15-year period.

The attorney general accuses Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley of failing to report his knowledge of sex abuse allegations against Sandusky and later lying to a grand jury about his knowledge.

Gary Schultz, the senior vice president for finance and business at Penn State, is facing the same accusations as Curley. His department oversees Penn State University police.
