PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Attorneys for ousted Penn State President Graham Spanier plan to dispute allegations he covered up reports of child sex abuse involving convicted former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Spanier’s lawyers planned to meet with reporters Wednesday morning in Philadelphia to discuss the university-funded investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh. Spanier will not attend the news conference.

Freeh’s report alleges Spanier and late coach Joe Paterno participated in a cover-up to spare the school bad publicity. Spanier and Paterno were fired in November, a few days after Sandusky was charged.

Two other university officials accused of covering up Sandusky’s abuse are charged with perjury and failing to report suspected child abuse. Spanier has not been charged.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing on 45 criminal counts involving 10 victims.
