Today's story on Sandusky case

Today's story on the Jerry Sandusky case before a statewide grand jury is published in the Patriot-News and the Centre Daily Times.

The reason? Reporter Sara Ganim began working on the story here and completed her investigative reporting after she moved on to the Patriot-News.
