07.28.14 | Sarah Harnisch

    In a decision over the weekend, a U.S. District judge ruled Penn State testimony against the college's former president may be improper, but it's not a reason for a federal court to stop Spanier's prosecution. Spanier requested the trial be halted because it violated his civil rights.the 66 year old was charged in November of 2012 with perjury in the trial related to Jerry Sandusky's abuse of 10 boys.
