The Pittsburgh Post Gazette just filed a report that says former Penn State President Graham Spanier will be charged with perjury and obstruction of justice stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The Post Gazette is citing multiple sources in their report.
Earlier today, the Twitter account @SPORTSbyBROOKS had the following Tweet, which seems to verify the Post Gazette’s claims.
SbB has learned Pa. AG Linda Kelly will tomorrow announce new criminal charges related to an ongoing child sex abuse investigation

Although @SPORTSbyBROOKS is fairly controversial, the fact that his information lines up with the Post Gazette seems to solidify the information.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly will announce the charges later today, according to the report.
Spanier, who was forced to resign nearly a year ago, has denied claims that he was aware of any severe sexual misconduct by Sandusky, although emails obtained by the Freeh report seem to indicate otherwise. Spanier has also denied knowing about the 1998 investigation into Sandusky by the Penn State police.
