Sandusky Bid To Restore Pension Is Hearing Subject

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky's campaign from behind bars to have his Penn State pension restored is going before a hearing examiner in Harrisburg, more than a year after his child molestation conviction led the state pension agency to revoke it.

Sandusky is expected to participate by video conference in the proceeding that starts Tuesday morning inside the retirement system's downtown headquarters. A decision could take months.

The hearing could last three days and bring to the stand witnesses tied to Penn State and The Second Mile, a children's charity founded by Sandusky where he met at least some of his victims.

The former Penn State assistant football coach lost a $4,900-a-month pension in October 2012, when he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison for child sexual abuse.
