HARRISBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - The former president of Pennsylvania State University was sentenced on Friday to four to 12 months imprisonment and two years probation on a child endangerment charge tied to a coverup of child sex abuse crimes by ex-coach Jerry Sandusky.

Graham Spanier, 68, was among three former school officials accused of covering up a 2001 complaint filed by then graduate student Michael McQueary, who said he witnessed Sandusky having sex with a boy in the campus football showers.
