BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY—A court hearing is set to determine if former Penn State assistant football Jerry Sandusky is a sexually violent predator under Pennsylvania's Megan's Law. Centre County Judge Cleland ordered the hearing to be held on Oct. 9 at 9 a.m. at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.
Sandusky was convicted on June 22 on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse. Since then the 68-year-old has been incarcerated at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
Under Megan's Law, sexually violent predators are subject to intense reporting requirements upon release from prison.
Sandusky will be sentenced immediately following the hearing to determine whether he will be labeled a sexually violent predator.
