Spanier Stands Trial Alone As Two Former Penn State Officials Plea-Bargain For Lesser Sentences

Posted in Victims Of Crime on Tuesday, March 14, 2017. reports the most recent developments in the Penn State case that has been impacting the school and the entire state of Pennsylvania for more than 5 years.

Most recently, two of the administrators facing charges have pleaded guilty for child endangerment related to the incident. The charges of child endangerment were brought against Penn State administrators Tim Curley (ex-athletic director), Gary Schultz (former vice president) and Graham B. Spanier (former university president).

While Curley and Schultz pleaded guilty to avoid felony conspiracy charges, former President Spanier maintains his innocence and will face trial alone.

The charges allege that Spanier knew about Sandusky’s inappropriate behavior and did not report this to the appropriate authorities.

These are serious charges, and while significant evidence against Spanier suggests his guilt, we can only watch and hope that justice is achieved in this case.

This case is proceeding in the criminal courts, but there is also a significant civil component of this situation, as well. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we will continue watching the important developments of this case, hoping for justice for the victims and their families.
