Former Penn State President to be Charged in Alleged Sandusky Coverup

Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly announced new charges surrounding Penn State's alleged coverup of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.


Former Penn State University Presient Graham Spanier will be charged with perjury, endangering the welfare of children and obstruction of justice, stemming from the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, according to a press conference broadcasted on 6ABC.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly held the press conference announcing the charges, citing e-mails between Spanier, former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and  former Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz discussing reports of Sandusky sexually abusing boys on campus.

According to Kelly, emails between the three had thinly-veiled reference of a 1998 incident on campus involving Sandusky,  referring to Sandusky as "the individual," Sandusky's non profit, The Second Mile, as "the organization," and the victims as "Sandusky's guests."

Kelly said that prosecutors have also prepared new charges against Curley and Schultz, who have already been indicted in the Sandusky case, according to Reuters.

"The law applies to everyone, from the ordinary man on the street, as well as to those that occupy a position of power and great influence in our society, men like the three defendants in this case," said Kelly.

Spanier, Curley, Shultz will appear Friday, Nov. 2 for a preliminary hearing in Harrisburg.

"The law applies to everyone, from the ordinary man on the street, as well as to those that occupy a position of power and great influence in our society, men like the three defendants in this case," said Kelly. this statement should apply to everyone who had any knowledge of this case and did nothing which includes our elected officials
