Graham Spanier, who was on a one-year sabbatical after being ousted as President last year, has now been placed on leave by Penn State.
Soon after Spanier was charged with eight counts relating to perjury and endangering the welfare of children, Penn State released a statement that mentions Graham Spanier’s future with the University.
An excerpt of that statement can be found below:
Spanier was removed as president of the University on Nov. 9, 2011. After his removal, he continued to serve as a tenured professor at Penn State, though he has been on sabbatical leave. In light of the charges brought against him, Spanier will be placed on leave, effective immediately.
