Two years after former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges, the scandal continues to play out.
BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Reporters won't be allowed to bring laptops or cellphones into the courtroom during next week's hearing on Jerry Sandusky's post-sentencing motions.
Judge John Cleland announced the decorum order Friday, saying it was required because reporters violated the rules when Sandusky was sentenced in October by tweeting.
Cleland says a "disheartening number of reporters" violated his order that no communications be made from inside the courtroom while court was in session. He says so many reporters ignored the order that it's impractical to attempt to punish them all for it.
The hearing Thursday in Bellefonte involves a claim by Sandusky that his lawyers didn't have enough time to prepare for trial.
The former Penn State assistant coach is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence on 45 child sex abuse counts.
