Attorneys, investigators and others won’t be talking about the Jerry Sandusky trial anymore.

The judge overseeing the Sandusky child sex abuse case has issued a gag order for nearly everyone involved, directly or indirectly, in the case.

Those affected by the gag order are no longer allowed to give opinions about Sandusky’s guilty or innocence, talk about evidence in the case, talk about Sandusky or the witnesses in the case or give opinions about the legal moves made by the opposition.

Those covered by the gag order include the prosecutors, employees of the Attorney General’s office, state police or law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation, defense attorneys and any employees or associates of the above.

Sandusky is accused of sexually assaulting 10 boys.  His trial is set for June 5.
