The attorney general's office, which is prosecuting Spanier, said travel permissions for Spanier should be considered by the court on a case-by-case basis.

"The commonwealth does not object to any specific request for domestic or international travel, only to a request that these be permitted without the need for seeking specific approval or leave from the court," wrote Bruce Beemer, the chief of staff to Attorney General Linda Kelly.

Spanier faces a preliminary hearing next week on charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction, conspiracy, perjury and failure to properly report suspected abuse. He has asked the judge to delay that hearing.

Spanier had been university president for 16 years when he was forced out after Sandusky's November 2011 arrest. He has denied the charges and has claimed he is being framed for political purposes.

Sandusky, 68, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence for sexually abusing 10 boys. He maintains he is innocent and is pursuing appeals.
