Spanier Granted Permission to Travel Outside the U.S.

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier was granted permission to travel internationally if he wishes, according to court documents released Thursday.

Spanier may now travel internationally under certain conditions. He must first make a request to travel internationally 20 days in advance to the Dauphin County court. Any request will be reviewed by the Office of the Attorney General. He must include in the request his destination, airline, itinerary, length of stay, list of people he will be traveling with and information about the extradition treaties the country he is going to has with the United States, according to court documents.

Spanier's passport will be held at the Office of the Attorney General in State College until he is granted permission to travel, and must return the passport within one business day of his return.

Spanier was charged last November with perjury, endangering the welfare of children, failure to report, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice in relation to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.

No trial date has been set.
