Former Penn State University President Graham Spanier attended the school's basketball game against Nebraska on Saturday, sitting in the front row at what is believed to be his first at a Penn State sporting event since he was fired in November 2011.
Spanier, also a former Nebraska chancellor, and two other high-ranking administrators face charges including perjury and obstruction for allegedly covering up sex abuse allegations against former PSU assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. All three are awaiting a preliminary hearing and have maintained their innocence.
Spanier was ousted along with Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno in the immediate aftermath of Sandusky's November 2011 arrest. A university-sanctioned investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh accused Spanier and Paterno of participating in a cover-up to protect the school's image.
Paterno died a year ago. His family has firmly denied allegations of a cover-up.
