Jury Selection for Former Penn State President Begins

Jury Selection for Former Penn State President Begins

Jury selection is set for this morning in Harrisburg.

Spanier is now the only Penn State administrator facing charges for his role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Mike McQueary says he saw Jerry Sandusky sexually abusing a boy in a team shower.

Sandusky is now in prison on child molestation convictions.

After six decades as Penn State's celebrated head football coach Joe Paterno was sacked shortly after Sandusky's arraignment on 45 criminal counts in 2011, as a media firestorm engulfed a university accustomed to telling the story of its athletic purity.

Co-defendants Tim Curley and Gary Schultz avoided felony charges with their guilty pleas earlier this month. It is unknown if the two will testify against Spanier during his trial.

Spanier spent 16 years as President of Penn State and is credited with boosting the school's reputation.
