HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities say Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and another school administrator have been charged with perjury and failure to report suspected abuse in an investigation into allegations that former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight young men.

State prosecutors said Sandusky was arrested Saturday. Curley and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz were expected to turn themselves in Monday. Schultz's position includes oversight of the university's police department.

Sandusky, who worked with at-risk children through a foundation, faces charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corruption of minors.

Attorney General Linda Kelly called Sandusky "a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys."

A message left on Curley's cell phone was not immediately returned, and a school spokesman had no immediate comment.
