Sandusky hearing set for Jan. 7

HARRISBURG (AP) — Jerry Sandusky will take part in his first public proceeding next month — albeit via video link — since he was sentenced to decades in prison for child molestation.

A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 7 into whether Pennsylvania should have stripped the former Penn State assistant football coach of his public worker pension. A spokeswoman for the State Employees’ Retirement System said Thursday that plans are for Sandusky to participate in the three-day hearing through a video connection to the state prison where he is confined.

Sandusky lost his $4,900-a-month pension last year on the day he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years.

A hearing examiner will advise the system’s board about whether the pension forfeiture should remain in place.
