Ex-Penn St official: 'I should have done more' in abuse case
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Penn State's former athletic director says he pleaded guilty to child endangerment in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal because "I felt I should have done more" following a 2001 complaint against Sandusky.
Tim Curley testified Wednesday at the trial of former Penn State president Graham Spanier (SPAN'-yur).
Spanier is also charged with child endangerment for not reporting to child welfare authorities the 2001 complaint about Sandusky's conduct with a boy in a team shower.
A graduate assistant reported the encounter to football Coach Joe Paterno, who in turn told Curley and the vice president.
The ex-assistant testified Tuesday he told university leaders he saw Sandusky molest a boy.
But Curley denied on the witness stand that either the assistant or Paterno told him the contact was sexual in nature.
Curley expects to be able to avoid prison.
