Ex-Penn State athletic director Tim Curley out of prison

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- Former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley has been released from jail after 2 1/2 months and is now serving the house-arrest portion of his sentence in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

The 63-year-old defendant was released from the Centre County jail on Oct. 3, according to Pennlive.com.

He was sentenced to seven to 23 months in jail after pleading guilty in March to child endangerment for not properly investigating a complaint by another Penn State assistant coach that Sandusky abused a boy in a locker room shower.

Curley must now serve four months on house arrest followed by two years on probation.

He was released less than a month after former university vice president Gary Schultz finished his six- to 23-month jail term for the same crime. Schultz is also serving house arrest and probation.
