A state officer will hear arguments Jan. 7 about whether pedophile Jerry Sandusky should keep his state pension.

A Centre County jury in June 2012 convicted Sandusky, 69, a former assistant football coach at Penn State University, of abusing 10 boys over 15 years. The Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System moved afterward to revoke his $59,000-a-year pension.

Sandusky's conviction triggered forfeiture under the state Public Employee Pension Forfeiture Act, according to SERS.

An attorney for Sandusky disagreed argued his client was not a university employee when toughened forfeiture rules became law in 2004. Sandusky retired in 1999.

He will appear via closed-circuit television at the hearing, which will be at the SERS office in downtown Harrisburg, according to a public notice. It's scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and could run for three days.
