Jurors deliberating in the child endangerment trial of former Penn State president Graham Spanier have asked to rehear excerpts from the transcript of testimony.

The panel on Friday reheard the testimony of Jack Raykovitz, who headed the charity for at-risk children founded by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Raykovitz said then-athletic director Tim Curley told him a 2001 complaint about Sandusky showering with a boy was investigated and no wrongdoing was found, but Sandusky was told he couldn't bring children to university athletic facilities any longer.

Spanier is accused of one count of conspiracy and two counts of child endangerment, all felonies, for his handling of the complaint. Curley pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and testified for the prosecution.

Jurors have deliberated about nine hours so far.
