BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- The judge overseeing the child sex abuse case of Jerry Sandusky says the former Penn State assistant coach can see most of his grandchildren while he awaits trial.
The judge ruled Monday that Sandusky can also use a jury chosen from the State College area to hear his case.
Sandusky had sought eased bail restrictions that would allow him access to his grandchildren. In his ruling, the judge said Sandusky can see the children under their parents' supervision, except for three grandchildren who are the subject of custody litigation.
Prosecutors had sought to have Sandusky confined to his home after hearing complaints from neighbors, but the judge denied that request.
The attorney general's office also wanted an out-of-county jury for trial, but the judge decided on a local jury.
