Former Penn State president Graham Spanier was sentenced to at least two months in jail and two months of house arrest for failing to properly report allegations of child sexual abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Spanier was convicted of misdemeanor child endangerment in March, but acquitted of a second endangerment charge and felony conspiracy. He was also ordered to pay a fine of $7,500 and perform 200 hours of community service. His full sentence is four to 12 months. Ex-athletic director Gary Schultz and ex-vice president Tim Curley pled guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment and testified at Spanier's trial. Curley was sentenced seven to 23 months, with at least three in jail. Shultz was sentenced six to 23 months, with two in jail.
