Former Penn State president Graham Spanier has reported to jail early to begin serving his sentence for child endangerment in a case stemming from the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.

Spanier reported to Centre County Correctional Facility, several miles from the Penn State campus, on Monday morning. That's according to warden Christopher Schell.

A judge upheld Spanier’s sentence last month and ordered him to begin serving at least two months in the county jail for a single misdemeanor conviction of endangering the welfare of children.

Penn State is investigating a new allegation of sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky.

The alleged sexual assault took place in the Lasch Football Building on the University Park campus between June 1, 2000, and September 30, 2010.

According to a Tuesday police report, the alleged victim was a visitor who knew the person they say sexually assaulted them.

The offenses are listed as rape or attempted rape and sex offenses 36B. That’s non-forcible statutory rape.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A judge is giving former Penn State president Graham Spanier three weeks to report to jail and start serving a sentence imposed over his handling of a complaint about Jerry Sandusky showering with a boy.

Court officials on Wednesday released an order from Judge John Boccabella that says Spanier can do his time in the jail near his home in State College if county jail wardens approve.

Spanier has remained out on bail after his 2017 conviction for misdemeanor child endangerment.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The man who served as Penn State's president when the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal erupted may soon be headed to jail after Pennsylvania's highest court said it will not take up his appeal.

A group of Penn State trustees is calling on the entire board to reject the 2012 Freeh report on the Jerry Sandusky scandal. They said they’ve done their own in-depth review and are asking the board to release it.

That group met on the University Park campus today. But there weren’t enough board members to hold an official meeting.

In the middle of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, Penn State hired former FBI director Louis Freeh to conduct a review. His findings have been the source of controversy.

 A Pennsylvania court is ordering the state government to restore the pension of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.

A Commonwealth Court panel ruled unanimously Friday that the State Employees' Retirement Board wrongly concluded Sandusky was a Penn State employee when he committed the crimes that were the basis for the pension forfeiture.

The pension is worth about $4,900 a month to Sandusky and his wife, Dottie.

Jerry Sandusky returned to court today for the first time since he was sentenced in 2012. He's currently serving 30 to 60 years in state prison for the molestation of multiple boys, a crime he committed while an assistant football coach at Penn State.

The long-awaited Freeh Report is unambiguous. It assigns blame for mishandling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal to four men – Penn State President Graham Spanier, Senior Vice-President Gary Schultz, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Head Football Coach Joe Paterno.

Members of the Penn State board of trustees received the report they commissioned at the same time as everyone else yesterday. An hour later, former FBI head Louis Freeh – who led the investigation – spoke about the findings in the report.
