A suburban Harrisburg district judge on Friday modified the bail conditions for the former Penn State president.
Spanier sought the changes last month, arguing that he comes in contact with trustees in State College, where he lives, and that he has no way of knowing who the witnesses will be.
Two former trustees live in his apartment complex.
Spanier is currently on paid leave from the university. He's awaiting a court hearing with co-defendants Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who served under him as athletic director and vice president.
Spanier is allowed to travel outside Pennsylvania, but can't leave the country.
