Judge permits Sandusky to appear at hearing

Updated:

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - A judge is allowing former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to leave his state prison cell in order to appear next week at a court hearing.

Judge John Cleland on Thursday signed the order permitting Sandusky to travel Jan. 10 from the State Correctional Institution at Greene in western Pennsylvania to the hearing at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte in central Pennsylvania. He was convicted in Centre County court in June on 45 counts of child sexual abuse involving 10 boys.

Sandusky will be picked up and transported by Centre County sheriff's deputies. The hearing will address Sandusky's post-sentencing motions. Sandusky maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals.

Authorities have said Sandusky molested victims inside university facilities, area hotels and inside his home.
