Penn State Scandal: Graham Spanier Could Face Charges

Former Penn State President Graham Spanier could be in line for charges after major new evidence has been revealed, according to Ron Mussellman of StateCollege.com.

The new evidence, according to investigators, was an email chain sent between Spanier, Gary Schultz, and Tim Curley in 2001 in which Spanier and Schultz said that it would be "humane" to Sandusky to not report him to the authorities.

Earlier today, Penn State spokesman David La Torre had the following to say about the report:

"In the course of former FBI Director Louis Freeh's independent investigation, e-mails were discovered and immediately turned over to the State Attorney General.

In deference to the legal process, the University cannot comment further on specifics of the ongoing legal case as it unfolds. We continue to work with the State Attorney General, the US Attorney and Judge Freeh in their investigations into this matter.

We will continue to cooperate fully with all legal processes to determine what happened and ensure personal accountability."
