Judge rules Baldwin testimony may be permissible against 3 PSU ex-administrators

HARRISBURG -- A Dauphin County judge ruled Friday that former Penn State University general counsel Cynthia Baldwin's testimony may be permitted against three former top school administrators accused of covering up the sexual abuse by former football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley, former Penn State Vice President of Business Gary Schultz and former President Graham Spanier were seeking to have Baldwin’s testimony banned from their criminal proceedings, stating that her testimony before a grand jury during the Sandusky investigation violated attorney-client privilege.
The three have argued that they believed Baldwin was acting as their counsel when they were employed at the school.
Dauphin County President Judge Todd A. Hoover denied the three men’s requests to preclude her testimony, saying their filings in the case are premature.
Hoover gave attorneys for the three men 30 days to file paperwork specifically showing where any attorney-client privilege was violated during the grand jury testimony. Likewise, the prosecutors will be able to file their responses to the defendant’s testimony.
Additionally, the defendants must present clear examples of the alleged violations of attorney-client privilege in order to quash the criminal complaint and grand jury presentment.
Curley, Schultz and Spanier are facing perjury and other charges in what the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office called a conspiracy of silence regarding the alleged cover-up of Sandusky’s crimes.
Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 on 45 counts of charges related to child sexual abuse while he served as a coach and in the years immediately following his retirement from Penn State in 1999.
