(Harrisburg) -- Former Penn State general counsel Cynthia Baldwin says in newly released grand jury testimony that the university's then-president made a series of lies and misleading statements in the months before Jerry Sandusky was arrested.

The documents released Wednesday include testimony from a year ago in which Baldwin flat-out contradicts a statement made by Graham Spanier to a reporter that he first knew the investigation involved more than horseplay when Sandusky was charged in November 2011.

Baldwin says ``of course he knew,'' and she believes ``that he is not a person of integrity.''

The records also indicate Baldwin told the grand jury judge she represented the university when Spanier testified before the grand jury in April 2011, but did not contradict Spanier when he soon after identified her as his lawyer.
