Lawyers for three former Penn State officials accused of covering up child sex abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky are headed to a Pennsylvania courthouse this week.

The hearing scheduled to start Tuesday in Harrisburg will focus on their claim that their right to legal representation was severely compromised when they appeared before an investigative grand jury.

The defendants are the school's former athletic director Tim Curley, former vice president Gary Schultz and former president Graham Spanier (SPAN'-yer). The case has lasted more than two years since charges were first filed and there isn't a trial date in sight.

They have argued the charges of perjury, obstruction, conspiracy, child endangerment and failure to properly report suspected child abuse should be dismissed.
