Pennsylvania judge: 6 jurors picked for Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) ' The judge overseeing jury selection in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case says six jurors have been picked.
Judge John Cleland said Tuesday that three more jurors were picked in the afternoon and that the process would not go past 5:30 p.m.
With six now picked, that leaves 10 more jurors to be selected. The panel will include 12 jurors and four alternates.
Jury selection began earlier Tuesday with some 220 people reporting.
Jurors are being chosen from people who live in the State College area, where Penn State's main campus is located. Sandusky faces 52 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys, charges he denies.
