Former Penn State President Spanier gets jail time in Sandusky abuse case
The former president of Penn State University and two other former administrators were sentenced to jail terms Friday for failing to report a 2001 allegation that assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was molesting young boys. The sentence of two months in jail plus another two under house arrest against a once-leading figure in American higher education marks a low point in the largely distinguished career of Graham Spanier, who was Penn State's president from 1995 to 2011. He was found guilty in March of one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.
