Graham Spanier loses request to see prosecution materials

(Harrisburg) -- Penn State's former president has lost his request to get various prosecution materials, including a transcript of his grand jury testimony, before he goes before a judge.

A Dauphin County judge has denied the three-day-old request.

Graham Spanier, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and retired school vice president Gary Schultz will appear in a Harrisburg courtroom Monday where prosecutors will try to persuade a judge that enough evidence exists to warrant a full court trial.

The three are charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy.

Prosecutors say they covered up an allegation that former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky had sexually molested a boy in a Penn State locker room shower. All three men say they're innocent.
