Judge gives Graham Spanier the OK to travel

Written by The Associated Press | Aug 29, 2013 3:22 PM

(Harrisburg) -- A judge is loosening travel restrictions for the former Penn State president accused of a criminal cover-up of complaints about Jerry Sandusky.

Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover has eliminated a bail restriction that required advance notice to the court of travel within the United States.

He's also allowing Graham Spanier to travel to other countries under certain conditions, but the former PSU president  will have to apply for permission at least 20 days ahead of time, laying out his itinerary and the country's extradition policy regarding the U.S..

His passport is being kept at the office of the state attorney general in State College until he gets the required permission.

Spanier and his attorneys aren't commenting on the new order.  He remains a tenured faculty member on paid leave.
