Investigators are mulling whether to bring charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier for possibly helping to cover up child abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky, according to a new report.
Authorities have “major new evidence,” including emails between Spanier, former university vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, NBC News reported Monday.
Schultz and Curley have pleaded not guilty to perjury charges for allegedly lying to a grand jury about what they were told about Sandusky’s alleged conduct.
One email between Spanier and Schultz reportedly concluded with them agreeing it would be “humane” not to tell authorities about possible child molestation by the assistant football coach in 2001.
