Graham Spanier Sentenced To Two Months In Jail, Curley And Schultz Also Will Be Incarcerated

Former Penn State President Graham Spanier will serve two months in jail, as well as an additional 2-10 months under house arrest. He is also ordered to perform 200 hours of community service and pay a $7,500 fine.

Former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley will serve three months in jail plus an additional 4-20 months under house arrest with a $5,000 fine and also 200 hours of community service.

Former Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz will serve two months in jail and an additional 4-21 months under house arrest. He also has a $5,000 fine and 200 hours of community service to perform.

All three are on probation for two years following their time incarcerated.

In March, a jury found Graham Spanier guilty on one misdemeanor count of child endangerment, and not guilty on two counts of felony child endangerment and conspiracy charges related to the Sandusky scandal.

Prior to the start of Spanier’s trial, Curley and Schultz each pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of child endangerment.

On Thursday, Deputy Attorney General Laura Ditka recommended that Spanier receive jail time after showing “a stunning lack of remorse for his victims.”

Spanier’s attorney Sam Silver hoped for for a sentence of probation, community service, and fines since the former university president is suffering from increasing health complications, including cancer and heart problems.
