BELLEFONTE — Former Penn State president Graham Spanier has reported to jail early to start serving his sentence for baby endangerment in a case stemming from the Jerry Sandusky baby sexual abuse scandal.
A web based inmate locator exhibits that Spanier is in custody at Centre County Correctional Facility, a number of miles from the Penn State campus. It wasn’t instantly clear when Spanier reported to jail. Cellphone and e-mail messages had been left with jail officers on Wednesday. Spanier’s lawyer declined remark.
A decide upheld Spanier’s sentence final month and ordered him to start serving no less than two months within the county jail by July 9 for a single misdemeanor conviction of endangering the welfare of kids.
After Spanier is launched, he’ll spend two months on home arrest with digital monitoring.
Spanier was charged over his response to a 2001 report that Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant soccer coach, had been noticed showering alone with a boy in a workforce locker room.
Spanier has stated the abuse of the boy was characterised to him as horseplay. He and different high directors didn’t notify police, and Spanier wrote in an e-mail on the time that “the one draw back for us is that if the message isn’t ‘heard’ and acted upon, and we then change into susceptible for not having reported it.”
