BELLFONTE, Penn. — Accused child predator and former Penn State assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky spoke Friday after a pretrial hearing.

Sandusky said he wants to be allowed to see his young grandchildren while awaiting his trial.

Prosecutors say Sandusky’s house isn’t a safe place for children since some of the alleged abuse happened in the basement of the home.

“You have numerous charges over a long period of time coming from multiple, multiple victims,” said Marc Constanzo, Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. “That tells you a little bit about the case. You know that the charges came out of a grand jury. That a grand jury recommended these charges. They heard the witnesses themselves,” he said.

“You can’t look at the word allegation in just a vacuum.  These are strong allegations. It’s a strong case,” Constanzo declared.

The judge did not immediately rule on Sandusky’s request but set May 14 as a tentative date to begin Sandusky’s trial on child sex abuse charges.
