Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky can see most of his grandchildren while he awaits trial in a child sex abuse case, a judge said Monday.

Sandusky, who's accused of sexually abusing10 boys over a 15-year period, will be allowed to see his grandchildren under the supervision of their parents. He won't be able to see three grandkids who are the subject of custody litigation.

The 68-year-old Sandusky has denied the sex-abuse allegations.

The judge also ruled Monday that Sandusky can have a local jury made up of residents of State College and the surrounding area.

Prosecutors had asked to have Sandusky, who is on home confinement as he awaits trial, ordered to remain indoors after after hearing complaints from neighbors, but the judge denied that request.
