Three former top Penn State University officials will face trial for allegedly covering up the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
A judge handed down the ruling today after a two-day preliminary hearing.
Prosecutors say former University President Graham Spanier, former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Vice-President Gary Schultz all knew about abuse allegations against Sandusky, but lied about it to a grand jury.
All three men have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.
Sandusky was convicted last year on 45 counts of child sex abuse.
He's currently serving a 30 to 60 year prison sentence.
