Former Penn State president Graham Spanier was sitting courtside Saturday at the Penn State-Nebraska basketball game at the Bryce Jordan Center.
When Spanier was asked what brought him to the game, he said "I was invited." Spanier would not disclose who invited him and had no further comment on the matter.
The 64-year-old became Penn State's 16th president in 1995, but was fired on Nov. 9, 2011 amidst the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. On Nov. 1, 2012, Spanier was indicted on charges of perjury, endangering the welfare of children, criminal conspiracy, failure to report and obstructing administration of law or other governmental function for his role in the Sandusky case.
Sandusky was found guilty on 45 counts of child sex abuse and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison last year.
Spanier, who also previously served as Nebraska's chancellor, is allowed to travel freely in the state of Pennsylvania according to the terms of his bail. However, he is not allowed to leave the country and must give a five-day notice before travel outside of the state.
