(Newser) – Former Penn State University president Graham Spanier, facing multiple charges for his alleged role in covering up the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, was released today on $125,000 bond after his arraignment, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Spanier's lawyer called the charges—conspiracy, obstruction, perjury, and child endangerment—"ridiculous" as Spanier left the court hearing. His preliminary hearing, along with those for suspended athletic director Tim Curley and former university VP Gary Schultz, is set for Monday.

It's such a shame that Penn State University, as a whole, including students, athletes, and staff, are being tainted by what one sicko bastard did and what several others didn't do (the right thing and have the sick perv arrested!!). I hope they all reap the rewards of their misdeeds (in prison, in this life, or the next life!!!!)
