HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) A federal judge will consider ex-Penn State president Graham Spanier's argument that his conviction should be thrown out, a week before he's due to report to jail.
The hearing Thursday concerns Spanier's argument he was wrongly convicted in Pennsylvania state court for mishandling a 2001 complaint about Jerry Sandusky under a version of the law that wasn't in place at that time.
He also argues the statute of limitations wasn't properly applied.
The 70-year-old Spanier was forced out as president shortly after Sandusky was arrested for child molestation in 2011.
Spanier was convicted in 2017 of child endangerment. He's scheduled to report to a county jail on Wednesday to begin serving two months.
Spanier remains a tenured faculty member on administrative leave, and the school doesn't release his salary.
