Former Penn State president charged in Sandusky case

Harrisburg, Pa. — Penn State's former president is accused of perjury, endangering children and other charges in the Jerry Sandusky molestation scandal.

According to online court records, charges were filed Thursday against Graham Spanier and two other administrators.

Spanier had been the school's president for 16 years until the scandal broke a year ago and had widely been considered vulnerable to charges.

New charges also were filed against Athletic Director Tim Curley and retired Vice President Gary Schultz, who were arrested last year with perjury and failure to properly report suspected child abuse. That case is scheduled for trial in January.

Sandusky is a former assistant football coach. He was convicted in June of molesting boys but maintains his innocence.

Spanier, Curley and Schultz have denied accusations they concealed allegations against Sandusky to protect Penn State from bad publicity.
