Jury fails to reach verdict in Penn State ex-president trial

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) Jurors in the criminal trial of former Penn State University president Graham Spanier spent more than six hours deliberating Thursday without reaching a verdict regarding the child endangerment and conspiracy charges he faces in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

The panel got the case after Spanier's attorneys declined to call any witnesses to counter accusations he acted illegally in handling a 2001 complaint about Sandusky, a former assistant football coach, showering with a boy. Deliberations were scheduled to resume Friday.

In a closing argument, Spanier attorney Sam Silver said there was "no evidence" and the case involved judgment calls by high-ranking university administrators in dealing with the complaint Sandusky had been seen naked with the boy in a team locker room.
