A judge on Wednesday ordered former Penn State University President Graham Spanier to start serving a two-month jail sentence in July in connection with the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.
Spanier’s 2017 misdemeanor conviction for one count of endangering the welfare of children had been overturned amid his legal team’s appeals before Judge John Boccabella upheld it this week.
Spanier was forced out as the school’s top administrator after Sandusky was arrested in 2011. Sandusky was convicted in 2012 for sexually abusing several boys during his career
