Graham Spanier to be arraigned Wednesday

The former president of Penn State will be arraigned Wednesday in Harrisburg, Pa., according to The Associated Press.

Graham Spanier is accused of lying during the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case and "trying to detrail the investigation." Spanier, 64, was charged last week with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy in response to complaints about Sandusky showering with children.

Spanier, who was Penn State's president for 16 years, denies the allegations. Spanier was "forced out" last year after Sandusky was charged. Spanier is on paid leave from Penn State.

When Spanier was indicted last week, the grand jury presentment said Penn State was subpoenaed for documents in December 2010 regarding Sandusky's then-alleged abuses of children. Spanier was told about the subpoena, but said he had no information on Sandusky.

Prosecutors also added counts against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. Curley is Penn State's athletic director who is on leave, and Schultz is the school's retired vice president.
