HARRISBURG, Pa. — Two Penn State administrators have appeared in court on new charges accusing them of hushing up child sexual abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The arraignment of Gary Schultz and Tim Curley lasted about 10 minutes Friday in a suburban Harrisburg courtroom.

Their additional bail is set at $50,000, but they don't need to post cash or other security. Their preliminary hearing is Nov. 12, a date the judge says is likely to be postponed.

The new charges are endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy.

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.

Schultz is the university's retired vice president. Curley is on leave as athletic director. Sandusky is serving a state prison sentence for sexually abusing 10 boys.
