February 13th, 2012 - 11:40 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt  

Los Angeles, Feb 13 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Judge John Cleland has ruled on all six petitions involving the case of molestation case against Jerry Sandusky. The judge had earlier ruled on Friday that Sandusky will have to stand trial in the middle of May for the sexual allegations brought against him.

The judge ruled on Monday that Sandusky should be given the chance to see his grandchildren. Prosecutors’ request to the Centre County Court in Bellefonte to have the trial venue changed was rejected by the judge. He ordered that local jury should be selected for the trial.

The main contention in the petition was whether Sandusky should be allowed to see his grandchildren. The judge ruled that with the exception of three of his grandchildren, Sandusky can see the remaining grandchildren. He will however do so under the supervision of the parents. The exempted grandchildren are a subject of custody litigation and as a result, the court prohibits him from seeing them.

Nonetheless, Sandusky will undoubtedly see the ruling as easing of his bail restrictions. He has accused his neighbors of witch-hunting him. A request by the prosecutors for Sandusky to be confined on the request of the neighbors was turned down by the judge as well.

More details soon.
