Prosecutors in the Penn State sex abuse scandal want to bring in jurors for Jerry Sandusky’s trial from outside of Centre County.

According to paperwork filed by the state attorney’s office, prosecutors said they are worried about, “The combination of pervasive publicity and the unique nature of the Penn State community.”

They add, “The unblinking eye of the press has focused on the case which is without…peer in the history of this Commonwealth.”

However, prosecutors said, they still want to try the case in Centre County.

Jerry Sandusky is a former Penn State assistant football coach.

Prosecutors said he sexually abused at least 10 boys and some of the abuse happened on Penn State’s main campus.

Sandusky denies the charges.
