Ex-Penn State president wants travel restrictions eased
HARRISBURG — Former Penn State President Graham Spanier wants a judge to loosen his bail rules to make it easier for him to travel outside Pennsylvania and overseas.
Spanier is accused of covering up complaints about Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant football coach convicted of sexually abusing boys.
Spanier's request filed last month says he wants to visit his second home in New York City and relatives in Iowa and Chicago.
He says work on educational projects requires travel to New York and New Jersey, and he has “continuing contact” with officials in Washington.
Spanier wants his passport back for foreign travel to a relative's wedding, to his father's hometown in Germany, and to the United Kingdom for work.
State prosecutors say the requests should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
