Today's testimony included a PSU employee in charge of public relations as well as Agent Sossano reading into the record the grand jury testimony of Spanier.
A passage in one of the articles I read today stood out to me as it truly shows how little care there was for the (then alleged) victims...
"In late October 2011, as the arrests neared, Spanier called a meeting in his office and slid a single sheet across the table to his top public relations handlers: a page full of platitudes and unconditional support for Curley and Schultz.More to follow -
The statement did not mention Sandusky's victims or the scourge of child abuse, Powers' boss, Bill Mahon, pointed out.
"There was no indication of empathy or concern expressed," Powers testified. "He felt that was lacking."
Mahon slid the statement back to Spanier, who scribbled the lines that became the opening paragraph: "The allegations about a former coach are troubling, and it is appropriate that they be investigated thoroughly. Protecting children requires the utmost vigilance."
"With regards to the other presentments, I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support. I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they have handled the allegations about a former University employee."

Prosecutors showed enough evidence during a two-day preliminary hearing to warrant a full criminal court trial for ex-President Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, Judge William Wenner concluded.
Wenner called it "a tragic day for Penn State University."
