Former Penn State president Graham Spanier has jail sentence upheld

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The former Penn State president who was forced out as the school's top administrator when Jerry Sandusky was arrested a decade ago will soon have to report to jail, after a judge on Wednesday upheld a sentence issued four years ago.

The judge ordered Graham Spanier to begin serving at least two months at the county jail several miles from the Penn State campus on July 9 -- followed by two months of house arrest on electronic monitoring -- for a single misdemeanor conviction of endangering the welfare of children.

Spanier was charged in 2012 and convicted by a jury in March 2017, but appeals had allowed him to stay out of jail.

"He made a mistake and he's going to pay for his mistake, but I don't consider him to be a danger to society as I would a criminal," Judge John Boccabella said.
