Judge Sets Hearing On Graham Spanier's Pending Jail Sentence

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Graham Spanier's lawyers are expected to be in a Pennsylvania courtroom next month as a judge considers whether the former Penn State president should have to report to jail to start serving his sentence related to the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

A judge in Harrisburg said Monday the May 26 hearing will address a motion by the state attorney general's office seeking to enforce Spanier's jail sentence.

A message seeking comment was left for Spanier's legal team.

Spanier was found guilty by a jury of a single misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of children.

He was sentenced to a minimum of two months in jail.
