HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - 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
Sandusky has maintained his innocence. There's a court hearing
on Friday regarding his bail conditions.
