Jerry Sandusky Allowed To Visit Grandchildren, Jurors To Be From State College

At a pretrial hearing that ended Friday, Jerry Sandusky's defense asked judge John Cleland to allow the former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach to leave his house to visit his grandchildren and for trial jurors to come from the State College area. The defense also wanted to see information from attorney general's office, including the ages of alleged victims. Monday, Cleland granted all requests.

Regarding the prosecution's complaint that locals had accused Sandusky of watching nearby children from his porch while on house arrest, Cleland responded:

"No evidence was presented that at any time the defendant made any effort to contact any of the children by signaling or calling to them, or that he made any gestures directed toward them, or that he acted in any inappropriate way whatsoever,'' Cleland wrote.

Sandusky's sex abuse allegations trial is tentatively scheduled for May 14.
