STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - After a sharp right turn off East College Avenue, drivers are treated to a sign that reads "road closed ahead. " Drive a little farther up the narrow, winding road and motorists are alerted to "Watch Children" before again being reminded the road is closed except for "local traffic. " It's a week since the news surfaced of the unfathomable sexual abuse charges against former longtime Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Aside from a couple of rumored sightings, Sandusky has managed for the most part to lay low. But that hasn't stopped the occasional person from driving by to see where Sandusky lives, right in front of Lemont Elementary School and a playground.

So what manner of a man is this Jerry Sandusky? On Nov. 13, 1999, he received a standing ovation from a crowd of 96,480. It was the occasion of his official retirement as dean of Linebacker U's impenetrable defense. For a long, long time, he was thought to be the successor to Joe Paterno. When he finally decided to leave the fold, after 32 years of unswerving loyalty and uncommon patience, they had him run out onto the Beaver Stadium sod for the last time. What must that have felt like, to hear a whole stadium of fans, on their feet, chanting your name, with Happy Valley reverberating with thunderclaps of applause and former players encircling you with hugs?

Ruling that Jerry Sandusky had sufficient time to prepare his defense to charges that he sexually assaulted teen-aged boys, a Centre County judge on Wednesday denied Sandusky's request for a new trial. Jurors convicted the former Penn State assistant football coach of 45 counts of sexual abuse of minors in a case that drew international attention. In October, he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. Seeking to reopen the matter, Sandusky, 68, appealed. He argued that the denial of a request for a trial delay amounted to a denial of his Constitutional right to an attorney.

Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky was transferred Wednesday to a maximum-security prison in the far southwestern corner of Pennsylvania where he will serve his 30- to 60-year sentence. At the State Correctional Institution at Greene, the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach's fellow inmates will include most of the state's death-row prisoners and convicted police killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. On Sunday, Sandusky was moved to the state prison in Camp Hill, where he was medically and psychologically evaluated, the Department of Corrections said.

Prosecutors on Wednesday filed new child sex-abuse charges against Jerry Sandusky, bringing to 10 the number of boys they say the former football coach molested or raped over the past decade. State police arrested Sandusky at his State College home and led him, draped in a blue-and-white Penn State track suit, in handcuffs into court. At a preliminary arraignment, Magisterial District Judge Robert E. Scott increased Sandusky's bail to $250,000 cash. He was taken to Centre County prison after being unable to immediately post bail.

About 600 potential jurors are slated to pack Centre County's courthouse Tuesday as lawyers begin the tedious task of finding a dozen who have not already made up their minds about Jerry Sandusky. In a county where the child sex abuse allegations against the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach have already tarnished the reputation of a university and led to the downfall of local hero and former head coach Joe Paterno, that task is likely to prove challenging.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - At 10:31 a.m. Tuesday, the large, flat-screen TV on the first floor of Penn State's student center flashed with a red breaking-news update. The TV was streaming CNN all morning. Twelve miles away, Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who was found guilty of sexually abusing 10 boys in a scandal that rattled this campus, was about to hear his fate. But here, in the HUB-Robeson Center, only 11 students sat facing the TV to hear the sentence. One of the students was napping.

The office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane asked Superior Court on Friday to reconsider a ruling by three of its judges that tossed out key charges against three Pennsylvania State University leaders in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. The three judges last month overturned a lower-court ruling that upheld obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges against former president Graham B. Spanier; Gary Schultz, a former vice president; and Tim Curley, a former athletic director, along with perjury charges against Spanier and Schultz.

A long-awaited Superior Court ruling that landed last month did more than just dismiss the most serious charges against three former Penn State administrators accused of covering up child sex attacks by Jerry Sandusky. It also handed Attorney General Kathleen Kane what could be her clearest opportunity yet to steer the outcome of a case that helped shape her election and tenure. Kane has less than three weeks to decide whether her office will ask the Supreme Court to reverse the Jan. 22 decision that drastically scaled back the case against former Penn State president Graham Spanier and top aides Gary Schultz and Tim Curley.

IT WAS A GOOD DAY for Jerry Sandusky - and a bad day for people who wanted to keep down their lunches. A panel of Commonwealth Court judges yesterday said Sandusky, the convicted pedophile and ex-Penn State defensive coach, should have his $4,900-a-month state pension reinstated. The seven judges unanimously ruled that the State Employees' Retirement Board erred when it stripped Sandusky of his pension in 2012 - after he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison for sexually abusing 10 boys - on the grounds that he was still a "de facto" Penn State employee when he sexually assaulted some of the children.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane testified Thursday that she had no evidence that the judge who oversaw the grand jury investigation of serial sex abuser Jerry Sandusky had leaked confidential information about the case. Kane was summoned to court in Harrisburg and questioned for 30 minutes during an unusual proceeding that was closed to the public. She had been directed to produce evidence to support statements that a judge interpreted as suggesting that Judge Barry F. Feudale had improperly leaked information in the case.

After Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said last week that the senior judge overseeing the grand jury investigation of Jerry Sandusky had recklessly leaked information, another judge told her to prove it. Senior Judge John M. Cleland gave her a week to come up with evidence showing the alleged leak had impacted the Sandusky case. On Wednesday, Kane said she didn't have any. Cleland, who is hearing Sandusky's appeal of his 2012 sexual-assault conviction, set the deadline in response to Kane's sharp criticism a week ago of Senior Judge Barry Feudale.

Has Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane opened the door for criminal defense lawyers to rummage through her office's most sensitive internal email documents? Kane surprised many in the state's legal community last week when she released two internal emails of a Pennsylvania judge who had supervised the grand jury investigation of convicted child abuser Jerry Sandusky, a former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach. They are appalled that Kane would cede the presumption of confidentiality by voluntarily releasing the emails.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - For the first time in nearly three years, Jerry Sandusky returned Thursday to the courthouse where he was convicted as a serial child sex abuser. And he might have left with an unanticipated sliver of hope, thanks in part to Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane. A hearing on a routine appeal by the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach grew into something else when a judge ordered Kane's office to provide emails and other information about the Sandusky investigation, which the former coach contends was tainted and unfair.

ON THE LIST of things you can be certain of in life, death and taxes have company: Porngate. There will be more Porngate. As you've no doubt heard by now, thousands of emails tied to the state pornographic-email scandal - which itself is tied to a separate grand-jury scandal that's getting awfully close to ending the career of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane - could be released to the public any day now. It's difficult for people who...
