Two Penn State administrators trying to get their charges thrown out may be helped by a decision from the judge in Jerry Sandusky's child sexual-abuse case to change the date of an alleged attack on a boy in the Penn State football team showers.
Attorneys for Gary Schultz and Tim Curley argue the new date of the incident involving "Victim 2" means the statute of limitations expired by the time they were charged in November with failure to report suspected child abuse.
Prosecutors had said the shower incident occurred in 2002. But on Tuesday, the Sandusky judge agreed to amend the offense date to February of 2001. That's more than 10 years before they were charged.
The issue doesn't affect the other charge they face, felony perjury for allegedly lying to a grand jury.
