The ongoing Jerry Sandusky case now has a tentative trial date: May 14, announced by judge John Cleland. The former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach, accused of sexually abusing young boys, has been going through a pretrial hearing this week.
Sandusky testified Friday at the hearing that he doesn't think it matters whether his jury is local to State College or composed of Pennsylvanians from elsewhere. Prosecutors want an out-of-county jury, while the defense wants to restrict jurors to nearer Penn State's campus.
Cleland also promised a swift ruling on Sandusky's request to see his grandchildren and heard complaints from prosecutors about Sandusky allegedly being spotted observing schoolchildren from his porch while on house arrest. The prosecution wants Sandusky to remain indoors except in the event of an emergency. The defense, of course, wants Sandusky to be able to leave his house.
