Spanier's Bail Amended Again, Granting Him Contact with Board of Trustees
Judge William Wenner signed an order Friday amending former Penn State President Graham Spanier's bail which gives him back the privilege of maintaining contact with current and former members of the Board of Trustees.
All other terms of Spanier's modified bail are to remain intact, according to the court order.
Spanier was arraigned on Nov. 7 when he was formally charged in former attorney general Linda Kelly's 'conspiracy of silence.' He faces the same charges as former athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz: perjury, endangering the welfare of children, failure to report, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Each man was charged in connection to the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.
The former Penn State president was originally ordered to turn over his passport, was banned from travel outside of Pennsylvania and was told he was not to have contact with anyone now on or formerly on the board. Spanier has since been granted the right to travel within the continental U.S. so long as he submits an itinerary and it is approved.
No court dates have been scheduled for Spanier, Curley or Schultz.
