The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office is asking a federal appellate court to reinstate former Penn State President Graham Spanier’s conviction on a child endangerment charge. A notice filed in federal district court on Wednesday said that prosecutors are appealing to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit to overturn U.S. Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick’s decision […]
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said on Wednesday that his office intends to appeal a federal judge's decision to vacate former Penn State President Graham Spanier's misdemeanor child endangerment conviction.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick ruled Tuesday in Scranton agreeing that Spanier was improperly charged under the 2007 law for what occurred in 2001, giving state prosecutors three months to retry Spanier.
Spanier was convicted on charges of child endangerment in March 2017 and has been out on bail ever since. The charges stem from his response to allegations of Jerry Sandusky’s sexual misconduct.
With his options at the state level exhausted, former Penn State President Graham Spanier has filed an appeal in federal court to vacate his 2017 conviction on a child endangerment charge.
Penn State will receive $733,000 from Jerry Sandusky's now-dissolved charity The Second Mile, according to a report from The Associated Press.
