Tell Us: Will Jerry Sandusky Get a Fair Trial?

Do you think former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky can get a fair trial in his highly publicized child molestation case?

One of the most high-profile trials of the year is set to begin and Patch wants to know if you think former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky will be treated fairly.

Vote in our poll and tell us in the comments section below.

Prosecutors claim that Sandusky groomed boys he met through The Second Mile, the charity he founded for at-risk youth in 1977, then attacked them, in some cases in his own home or inside university athletic facilities.

Jurors will not be sequestered, meaning they can spend nights and weekends at home. But the judge gave strict orders for them to stay clear of any news reports, as well as social media.

re; "NO ACT OF OURS"...Whose Act Was It? There was a SYSTEM in place that covered it all up for many years. It's not the "Sandusky Scandal". It's the Penn State Failure. ONLY when sentences are handed down to a predatory, pedophile rapist and all perjurors who ENABLED this to go on -FOR MANY YEARS-, will Step 1 occur. Step 2 = ALL new policy's put in place to insure NOTHING like that _______ ever occurs again, and Step 3 = Implementing the policy changes- with teeth. http://tinyurl.com/mvmguitarist

Earnest, I agree totally. Attorney General Linda Kelly nearly broke her arm patting herself and the state on the back for getting Sandusky off the streets. Her post-verdict podium speech was a bore, unnecessary and obviously a valuable campaign ad that money could never buy. She should earn re-election by going after Corbett and nailing him for sweeping the Penn State scandal under the carpet. Now, that would show she has real guts and cares about kids.
