Former Penn State president Graham Spanier hopes a Pennsylvania appeals court will agree that too much time had passed for him to be charged with endangering the welfare of children over his handling of a complaint about Jerry Sandusky. A three-judge Superior Court panel heard oral argument today in the 69-year-old Spanier’s appeal. Spanier’s challenging a misdemeanor guilty verdict for how he responded to a 2001 report that former assistant football coach Sandusky sexually abused a boy in a team shower. He’s arguing a two-year statute of limitations applies and had expired by the time he was charged in 2012. The jury acquitted Spanier of conspiracy and a second count of child endangerment.
