"Fran Chardo, Dauphin County's first assistant district attorney, said the fact that prosecutors dropped the conspiracy charges against Curley and Schultz strongly indicates an agreement that they testify against Spanier. Otherwise, he said, it could imperil the conspiracy charge against the third administrator."
Their testimony likely means that neither Curley nor Schultz will see jail time for the endangerment plea.
"I would expect that if they testified and testified truthfully that their lawyers will make a strong case they shouldn't see incarceration," Chardo said. "Their lawyers will argue the real villain is Spanier."
