Penn State ex-President Spanier gets US travel OK

Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A judge is allowing former Penn State President Graham Spanier to travel outside state lines but won't permit any foreign trips.

Spanier lawyer Ed Spreha says he was notified of the order Monday. It requires Spanier to provide five days' notice of any travel outside Pennsylvania.

Spanier is facing charges that include obstruction and perjury for allegedly covering up complaints in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

Spanier was also ordered not to have any contact with current or past members of the Penn State Board of Trustees, or with any witnesses in the case against him.

Spanier wanted permission to travel to Europe for work and family matters.
