(Newser) – Pennsylvania's attorney general is expected to announce charges today against ex-Penn State President Graham Spanier for his alleged role in covering up Jerry Sandusky's sex crimes. Spanier, who was ousted along with Joe Paterno when the scandal broke, faces perjury and obstruction of justice charges, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports, because he told a grand jury last year that he had no knowledge of the 1998 University Police investigation of Sandusky. Emails uncovered since seem to indicate that was far from the truth.

Maybe he and Jerry can be bunk mates.

Perjury is the least charge this fuckwad should be facing. Aiding and abetting rape is more like it. Either way, if he lands in the slammer, he'll do his time in solitary. If they put him in the general population, he'll be a dead man in weeks.

Maybe he can share a cell with Sandusky and learn more about romance with the coach.
