The judge who will preside over Jerry Sandusky’s trial on sexual abuse charges today issued an order banning tweeting or other live electronic communications from the courtroom.
Jury selection in the high profile case is set to begin Tuesday.
Judge John M Cleland’s short order does not explain the ban, but Pennsylvania law does not permit broadcasting of a trial.
Sandusky, a former assistant to Penn State’s late football coach Joe Paterno is charged with molesting 10 boys he met through a charity he set up for underprivileged youth. Many of the alleged incidents happened on the main Penn State campus or on official football team trips.
