Another weird turn has occurred in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case.
Pennsylvania state prosecutors want changes in Sandusky’s bail conditions after getting complaints that the former Penn State football coach has been watching children in a nearby schoolyard from the back porch of his home, where he’s currently on house arrest.
Sandusky is awaiting trial on child molestation charges, stemming from charges that he sexually abused numerous boys over the course of 15 years.
According to the Associated Press, the attorney general’s office argued in court papers filed today 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.
