Sandusky Jury Selection to Begin

Jury selection began on Tuesday for the trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with child rape. Sandusky, 68, has been accused of molesting 10 boys, whom prosecutors allege Sandusky met through a charity he ran for underprivileged children, for more than 14 years. Judge John Cleland ruled on Monday that the victims’ identities may not be concealed during the trial, although they will be protected during the jury-selection process. Cleland ruled on Tuesday that the jurors will not be sequestered. The accusations against Sandusky caused Penn State to fire legendary coach Joe Paterno just months before he died of lung cancer, and two other officials have been charged with covering up Sandusky’s alleged crimes.
