"Several individuals from the adjacent elementary school have expressed concerns for the safety of children at their school and the adjacent neighborhood," prosecutors wrote. "Such concerns will only mushroom if defendant is permitted to roam at will outside his house."
The prosecution filing regarding bail said that Sandusky's son's ex-wife "strenuously objects" to her three minor children having any contact with him.
"The commonwealth believes that [the] defendant should be in jail," prosecutors wrote. "He has been granted the privilege of being confined in his own home, which is spacious and private and where he can eat food of his own preference and sleep in his own bed at night. House arrest is not meant to be a house party."
Sandusky, 68, has maintained that he is innocent of the allegations, which claim that he engaged in a range of illegal acts with boys over 15 years, from touching their legs to subjecting them to violent sexual assault.
As Sandusky's lawyers prepare for trial, they have asked a judge for copies of secret grand-jury testimony, the phone numbers of his accusers and other material. A 37-page pretrial discovery motion sought dozens of records from the state Attorney General's Office, including subpoenas, photos, unredacted passages of blacked-out documents already provided to the defense, investigative notes and psychiatric records.
Sandusky wants the phone numbers of his accusers so that he can obtain their phone records.
"In many cases, [Sandusky] believes the accusers may have collaborated with each other in making these false accusations," lawyer Joe Amendola wrote.
