Former Penn State president asks federal court to halt criminal case

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier is asking a federal judge to halt his prosecution for an alleged criminal cover-up of complaints about Jerry Sandusky.

Spanier's lawyers filed a complaint Monday in federal court in Harrisburg that says his case was "undertaken in bad faith" and that it violates his constitutional right to due process of law.

A message left for the defendant, state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, wasn't immediately returned.

Spanier is awaiting trial in Dauphin County along with former Penn State vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley.

In that case, the defendants are waiting for a decision by the trial judge regarding claims that their right to legal representation was violated by the actions of former Penn State general counsel Cynthia Baldwin.
