Pa. judge to consider Sandusky jury, bail issues

    A dispute about whether people from the State College area will be allowed to sit as jurors in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex-abuse case is the subject of a hearing in a Pennsylvania courtroom today.

    The proceeding at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte is also expected to address Sandusky’s request to have contact with his grandchildren and others while he awaits trial on 52 criminal counts.

    Prosecutors want bail conditions toughened for the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach, so that he wouldn’t be allowed outside his home except for medical treatment.

    Other matters Judge John Cleland must decide include how much information prosecutors should have to turn over to Sandusky’s lawyers, and how quickly they have to do it.
