HEARING

Investigation Stalls Sandusky Pretrial

The grand-jury investigation into child-sex-abuse charges against Jerry Sandusky hampered a pretrial hearing on Thursday morning, as many details of the probe are still being worked out and major decisions are “still in flux,” Judge John Cleland said in adjourning the hearing. Lawyers in attendance were reportedly arguing over whether items found by prosecutors in Sandusky’s home can be used as evidence in court. Sandusky’s defense attorney had also requested that the judge discount critical evidence culled by prosecutors, including interceptions of telephone conversations between Sandusky and alleged victims.
