Former Penn State President Graham Spanier is facing charges in connection with the Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal at the University. The charges against Spanier include obstruction of justice, perjury, conspiracy, endangering the welfare of children and failure to report allegations of child abuse.
Prosecutors say Spanier, along with suspended Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley, and former Vice President Gary Schultz “used their positions to conceal and cover up for years the activities of a known child predator”.
Pa. Attorney General Linda Kelly announced additional charges against Curley and Schultz. All three now face identical charges. Kelly said they “worked to actively conceal the truth with total disregard to the children who were victims in this case”.
