Jury selection under way in child sex-abuse trial of ex-Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) ' Prosecutors and Jerry Sandusky's defense lawyers have begun the process of picking a jury for his child sexual abuse case.
Jury selection got under way Tuesday inside a central Pennsylvania courthouse. The process could take several days.
More than 200 prospective jurors have been instructed by the judge and now will be taken, in groups of 40, to the next phase of selection for questions and answers.
The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach is accused of 52 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years, charges he's repeatedly denied.
Jurors are being chosen from among people who live in the State College area, home to Penn State's main campus.
Sandusky arrived at the courthouse Tuesday morning. He and his lawyer made no comments as they exited their vehicle.
