Former Penn State President Found Guilty After Failing To Report The Suspected Sandusky Abuse

Five years after former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was first charged with sexually abusing children, a jury has found former president of Penn State, Graham Spanier, guilty on one count of child endangerment.

Prosecutors in the case depicted Spanier as a bureaucrat whose inaction allowed "evil" to run wild on innocent children.  The jury deliberated 13 hours before finding him guilty of one count of child endangerment.  That came from Spanier's handling of a complaint against Sandusky.  

The 68-year-old will be sentenced later this year.  According to USA Today, Spanier faces anywhere from probation to a maximum sentence of five years.
