The disclosure came during the second day of testimony in a hearing to determine if three former Penn State officials will face trial on accusations they covered up molestation accusations against Sandusky.

Braden Cook testified Tuesday about unearthing emails that ended up as evidence in the case.

Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley say they are innocent.

A judge will later decide whether the men should be tried on charges including perjury, conspiracy and endangering the welfare of children.

Lisa Powers, a public relations professional employed by the university, also testified Tuesday morning.
