Jury Selection for Former Penn State President Begins

Attorney talks on former Penn State University president Spanier, trial begins tomorrow

The newspaper reported Penn State Trustee Al Lord saying Spanier told him he would "rather go to jail for telling the truth than admit to a lie and say I did something I didn't do".

Sandusky, who spent decades as the football team's defensive coach, was convicted in 2012 of child sexual abuse, after which a university-commissioned report from a team led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Louis Freeh made the scathing conclusion that Spanier, Curley, Schultz and former head coach Joe Paterno had "concealed critical facts" about Sandusky's abuse of children to avoid bad publicity. Spanier is charged over his response to the scandal but denies any wrongdoing.

This opens the door for the two to testify against their former boss during the trial.

The charges stem from their handling of the 2001 report that Sandusky had apparently molested a boy in a team shower.

McQueary, who late a year ago was awarded $12 million by a jury, against PSU, under the whistle blower law, said he told administrators and Coach Joe Paterno he saw Sandusky sexually abusing a boy in a locker room shower back in 2001.

The Penn State scandal is expected to once again play out in court.

Duminy has played a part in seven IPL campaigns playing for the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad as well as the Daredevils. Duminy said of his withdrawal: "It has been a very hard decision for me to make, but it was for purely personal reasons".


Spanier was forced out shortly after Sandusky, a longtime assistant football coach, was charged with child molestation in 2011.

"At no time during my presidency did anyone ever report to me that Jerry Sandusky was observed abusing a child or youth or engaged in a sexual act with a child or youth", Spanier wrote, words that he and his lawyers have echoed repeatedly.

Recently, former University Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley pleaded guilty to child endangerment charges.

Spanier faces child endangerment and conspiracy charges in connection to the alleged coverup of Jerry Sandusky's crimes.

Graham Spanier's trial in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is scheduled to start on Monday and could last a week or more. Spanier did not report the complaint to police or child welfare and allegedly told Sandusky not to bring children onto campus anymore.
