Judge allows Sandusky visits from his grandchildren

(Reuters) - A judge on Monday allowed ex-Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky to visit with 11 of his 14 grandchildren at his home, where he is under house arrest on child sex abuse charges.

Judge John Cleland of Centre County Court also ruled Sandusky must be tried by a jury from Centre County, home of Penn State University, where he was an assistant football coach until his firing last fall. Prosecutors had requested a jury made up of people from outside the county.
