Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover on Wednesday ruled against motions by former vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley that would have thrown out the perjury count each faces.

The judge didn’t rule on the other charge against them, failure to properly report suspected child abuse. In that case, the defendants say the statute of limitations has expired.

Schultz is retired after serving as vice president for business and finance. Curley in on leave as athletic director.

Trial is expected to begin in January. The attorney general’s office has declined to comment. A spokeswoman for the defense hasn’t responded to messages seeking comment. Sandusky was convicted in June.
