Sandusky Scandal: Former Penn State Officials to Stand Trial

Hunter Martin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Three former Penn State University administrators will stand trial for their role in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

The judge took no pleasure in ordering ex-Penn State president Graham Spanier, ex-vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley to trial.

The judge called this a "tragic day for Penn State University."

Prosecutors have argued it was tragic, and a crime, for those men to cover-up allegations of child sex abuse involving one time assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The defendants have denied hiding evidence or lying to a grand jury.

In October, Sandusky was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison for the sexual abuse of 10 children.
