Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Seats for bail hearing on first-come, first-served basis

BELLEFONTE — About 100 seats for the public will be available for the hearing Friday morning for Jerry Sandusky’s request to modify his bail.

Centre County court officials said the public will be admitted at 9:30 a.m. for the 10 a.m. hearing in the main courtroom. People will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bellefonte Police Chief Shawn Weaver has said that no streets will be closed and traffic won’t be disrupted.

Officials will have satellite trucks park behind in a lot in front of the Sheriff’s Office building at the top of the High Street hill. County employees can park in any municipal lot as long as they have a parking pass that was issued Tuesday.

The borough is charging the media companies $20 per day to park in town.

A media staging area will be reserved for the back of the courthouse, but it’s not yet known if Sandusky will attend the hearing.
