Graham Spanier, who was Penn State’s president when the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal came to light may be headed to jail soon.
The state Supreme Court today decided to not hear Spanier’s appeal of a misdemeanor child endangerment conviction related to his handling of a 2001 complaint about Sandusky showering with a boy in the football team’s locker room.
Spanier argued the trial judge and a lower appeals court wrongly relied on a statute of limitations law that prosecutors never cited.
He’s been out on bail and hasn’t begun serving a sentence of two months in jail and two months’ house arrest.
Spanier and his lawyer haven’t commented yet.
