Spanier and two other high-ranking administrators face charges including perjury and obstruction for allegedly covering up sex abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. All three are awaiting a preliminary hearing and have maintained their innocence.
Spanier was ousted along with Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno in the immediate aftermath of Sandusky's November 2011 arrest. A university-sanctioned investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh accused Spanier and Paterno of participating in a cover up to protect the school's image.
Paterno died almost a year ago. His family has firmly denied the allegations of a cover-up.
