Wife: Charged PSU administrator Curley has cancer
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- A Penn State administrator charged with failing to report an allegation of child sex abuse involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been diagnosed with a recurrence of lung cancer.
Athletic Director Tim Curley's wife says doctors are monitoring his condition after an illness first diagnosed in June 2010 flared up again.
Melinda Curley said in a statement Wednesday doctors had removed half of one lung after discovering a malignant tumor but neither chemotherapy nor radiation was required. She thanks well-wishers and requests privacy.
Tim Curley's lawyer Caroline Roberto says he doesn't want his health to minimize the serious legal issues.
Curley is on administrative leave. He's also charged with perjury and is awaiting trial.
Roberto says Curley remains focused on proving he's not guilty of the charges.
Sandusky also denies the allegations against him.
