WJAC-TV: State Details Case Against Ex-PSU President

By: The Associated Press

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office has filed papers detailing the lies it says former Penn State President Graham Spanier during his grand jury testimony over the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.

According to a report published by The Associated Press, the papers were filed Friday. The allegations in the prosecutors’ itemized list aren’t new, but the specifics were listed to answer Spanier’s request this fall for details of the charges.

In one example, Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s attorneys say Spanier was asked in April 2011 whether university officials discussed filing a police report over a 2001 shower encounter witnessed by former assistant football coach Mike McQueary, and Spanier said no. But emails discovered later appear to show a discussion about whether to report it.

Spanier has maintained his innocence.
