Judge Grants Spanier's Request for Out-of-State Travel, Denies International Travel
Former Penn State President Graham Spanier was granted his bail modification request, permitting him to travel outside of Pennsylvania, on the condition that his detailed itinerary is given an OK by the court.
In court documents filed on Monday, a judge said Spanier must submit an itinerary to the court no less than five business days before he plans to travel out-of-state. He is still banned from traveling outside of the continental U.S. The former university president's passport was revoked as a condition of his bail.
Spanier is also not allowed to contact any member of the Penn State Board of Trustees or Commonwealth witness, according to court documents.
Spanier was arraigned on Nov. 7 and faces the same five charges – perjury, endangering the welfare of children, failure to report, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice – as former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz.
No court dates have been scheduled after the men's Dec. 13-14 preliminary hearing was canceled and Curley's and Schultz's Jan. 7 trial was postponed.
