Pa. judge to consider Sandusky jury, bail issues

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is in court for a pretrial hearing where a judge will hear dueling arguments about whether restrictions on his movement should be tightened or loosened.

Sandusky arrived in court today for a hearing where several issues related to child sex-abuse case will be raised.

Prosecutors want stricter bail conditions that would keep Sandusky inside his home after neighbors complained he’d been spotted outside, watching children in a nearby schoolyard.

Sandusky’s attorney counters that his client has satisfied the conditions of his release and should have restrictions lifted that bar him from seeing his grandchildren.

Also among the issues to be argued is whether Sandusky’s trial should be heard by an out-of-county jury.
