Former UNL Chancellor Graham Spanier set for trial

Penn State’s ex-president Graham Spanier and two former top administrators will stand trial on charges accusing them of a cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Lead prosecutor Bruce Beemer argued Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley failed to tell police about a 2001 allegation that Sandusky was molesting a boy in a university locker room shower, despite knowing that police investigated complaints about Sandusky showering with boys as far back as 1998.

Spanier was Chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 1991 to 1995. He left UNL to become President of Penn State.
