Former Penn State assistant football coach and convicted child sexual abuser Jerry Sandusky will get out of prison next week — briefly, and only to attend a hearing in Centre County.

Judge John Cleland on Thursday ordered that Sandusky be transported from SCI-Greene on Jan. 10 to the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte for a motions hearing.

Sandusky's lawyers claim they had insufficient time to prepare for trial because Cleland refused to postpone and let them review “the vast amount of material” the Attorney General's office collected during a three-year investigation.

A jury convicted Sandusky, 68, of molesting 10 boys over 15 years. He is serving 30 to 60 years in prison. Sandusky is appealing the verdict.
