Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach who has been accused of sexually abusing eight young boys, is no longer allowed to be alone with his grandchildren, according to the Centre Daily Times.

The temporary order was approved by a Centre County court, according to the report, which goes on to add:

Prothonotary Debra Immel said the order issued by Judge Thomas Kistler on behalf of three children states that the children, who live with both of their parents in a shared custody arrangement, can not be in the presence or at the home of their paternal grandfather, Sandusky, without supervision.
This news emerges as students show their support for Penn State head coach Joe Paterno by gathering on his lawn and cheering.  Paterno reportedly knew of at least one incident involving Sandusky, but reported it only to Penn State's athletic director, not to the authorities.
