(Harrisburg) -- Former Penn State President Graham Spanier is due in court today for his preliminary arraignment on charges he failed to report suspected child abuse by Jerry Sandusky.

A judge is also scheduled to set bail today for Spanier, charged last week with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. 

The 64-year-old Spanier led Penn State for 16 years before being forced out a year ago when Sandusky was charged along with two of Spanier's top underlings.

Spanier is a faculty member on paid leave.

Prosecutors charged Spanier and added counts against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

They were previously charged with failure to report suspected abuse and perjury.

Sandusky is serving prison time for child molestation.
