Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz were arraigned Friday during a short court appearance amid new charges of failing to report child sexual abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

An additional $50,000 in bail was set for Curley and Schultz by District Judge William Wenner based on the additional charges that include child endangerment and conspiracy.

Curley and Schultz previously were charged with perjury before the grand jury in the Sandusky case and for failing to report suspected child abuse.

A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 12.

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

According to the Harrisburg Patriot-News, Schultz's attorney, Tom Farrell, said the accusations didn't reflect the quality of the administrators' character and Curley's attorney, Caroline Roberto, said the new charges are based on previous allegations.

Curley is on leave as athletic director in the final year of his contract. Schultz is retired from the university.

Sandusky was convicted of molesting 10 boys and is serving 30-60 years in prison.
