A judge has scheduled a hearing for Monday to address Jerry Sandusky’s request for specific details about the charges of child abuse against him.

The hearing will be at 11 a.m. in the Centre County Courthouse Annex at the corner of High and Allegheny streets. The scheduling was ordered Tuesday morning by Senior Judge John Cleland.

Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, is asking for the exact time, date and location of each of the 52 allegations as well as how old the accusers were at the time. His request is for what’s known as a bill of particulars.

The prosecution said the accusers were children at the time and don’t remember exactly when the alleged abuse happened.

Prosecution provided a range of years and pinpointed some of the locations of where the alleged crimes took place, such as at Sandusky’s home or on Penn State’s campus.

Sandusky, 68, a former longtime assistant football coach at Penn State, is confined to his home as he awaits trial on 52 criminal counts that involve 10 boys over 15 years. He denies the allegations.

It’s not immediately known if Sandusky will attend the hearing.

The trial is scheduled to start in mid-May.
