Officials Want Tougher Sandusky Bail Rules After Complaints
Pennsylvania state prosecutors are seeking changes in Jerry Sandusky’s bail conditions after getting complaints he’s been watching children in a nearby schoolyard from the back porch of his home, where he’s on house arrest awaiting trial on child molestation charges.
The attorney general’s office argued in court papers filed Tuesday that Sandusky’s bail conditions should be revised so that the former Penn State assistant coach isn’t allowed outside unless he’s getting medical treatment.
Prosecutors say they’re opposed to Sandusky’s request to be allowed to see his grandchildren. They say he should be jailed as he awaits trial on 52 criminal counts related to sexual abuse of boys.
Sandusky has maintained his innocence. There’s a court hearing on Friday regarding his bail conditions.
