Prosecutors want our of county jury in Sandusky trial

Pretrial publicity and Penn State’s prominent role in its local community mean Jerry Sandusky’s criminal trial should be heard by jurors brought in from another Pennsylvania county…that’s what prosecutors argued in a motion filed Tuesday. Sandusky’s lawyer said he would fight the proposal.
The attorney general’s office also said it would give the university’s former assistant football coach the names of the 10 young men he is charged with having sexually abused.
Prosecutors said media coverage of the 68-year-old Sandusky’s arrest on charges he sexually abused boys over a 15-year period has been "spectacular in its breadth and intensity."
