The Judge in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation trial granted the former Penn State defensive coordinator the right to visit with his grandchildren, according to the Associated Press. The Judge also decided to allow Sandusky a jury of people who live within the local area.

Sandusky had requested both the right to see his grandchildren and the right to a local jury in a hearing last week. Afterword, he briefly spoke to the media:

Sandusky is facing 52 counts of sexually abusing young boys over a 15 year period. He has professed his innocence to both NBC and The New York Times. The child sex-abuse scandal cost now deceased coaching legend Joe Paterno his job. Two other Penn State officials are charged with perjury and failure to report abuse in connection with the case.
