Opening statements are expected Tuesday in the trial of former Penn State President Graham Spanier - accused in an alleged cover-up of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

Spanier faces three felony charges for his role in allegedly covering up incidents involving Sandusky and the abuse of children at Penn State.

The attorney general's office's witness list includes two former Penn State officials who took plea deals last week - former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley.

Asked whether he had seen the Trump administration's plan to wipe out Islamic State, Abadi said: "I haven't seen a full plan". Meanwhile in Iraq, a fight to completely liberate areas under the Takfiris' control continued.

Michael McQueary, a former Penn State assistant football coach, who testified to a grand jury that he witnessed Sandusky in the showers of the Lasch Building, appeared on the list.

"At no time during my presidency did anyone ever report to me that Jerry Sandusky was observed abusing a child or youth or engaged in a sexual act with a child or youth", Spanier wrote, words that he and his lawyers have echoed repeatedly.

Jury selection started Monday in Harrisburg out of a pool of close to 150 people.

Slowly, the gray-haired, dapper 68-year-old Spanier turned so all 137 of the prospective jurors for his criminal trial could get a good look at him. He has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing. Prosecutors say their failure to report that to authorities allowed Sandusky to continue to abuse boys and also endangered others.

On Monday, they pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment and could face up to five years in prison along with a 10-thousand dollar fine.

Sandusky was arrested a decade later and was convicted in 2012 of sexually abusing ten boys. Paterno notified Curley and Schultz, and McQueary met with both of them about a week later.
