(CENTRE DAILY TIMES) — A Centre County jury will hear the child sex abuse case against Jerry Sandusky, a judge ruled this morning.
Senior Judge John M. Cleland denied prosecutors’ request to bring in out-of-county jurors.
Prosecutors had argued that the intense publicity surrounding the case and residents’ deep connection to Penn State would taint a potential jury pool. Sandusky and his attorney argued they want an in-county jury and disagreed with the prosecution’s rationale.
They laid out their arguments during a hearing Friday.
In his order, Cleland said it’s not possible to know if a potential juror can be fair until he or she is asked.
