ccording to sources close to the investigation of Penn State University officials embroiled in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, former university President Graham Spanier has been charged with perjury and obstruction of justice. State Attorney Linda Kelly is expected to announce the charges later on Thursday. Spanier, who was forced to resign after child sex-abuse charges were brought against former Penn State assistant football coach Sandusky, has long been identified as a target in the investigation of an alleged cover-up of Sandusky's long history of sexual abuse of young boys. Sandusky was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison in October for 45 counts of child molestation.
