HARRISBURG, Pa. Prosecutors asked Tuesday to have Jerry Sandusky kept indoors as part of his bail conditions, citing complaints that the former Penn State football assistant was seen outside and watching children in a schoolyard from the back porch of his home, where he remains under house arrest while awaiting trial on child molestation charges.
The state attorney general's office argued in a court filing that Sandusky's bail conditions should be revised so that he is not allowed outside except to seek medical treatment. Prosecutors said they opposed Sandusky's request to be allowed contact with his grandchildren as he awaits trial on 52 child sex-abuse charges.
"Several individuals from the adjacent elementary school have expressed concerns for the safety of children at their school and the adjacent neighborhood," prosecutors wrote. "Such concerns will only mushroom if defendant is permitted to roam at will outside his house."
The allegation he was watching children was outlined in an exhibit attached to the filing, a memo from a state investigator to a county probation officer that said a teacher and intern had reported concern for the children's safety.

This guy is one sick, debased individual. He should not be allowed to even look at children. I believe he is one step away from something more horrible than he has been accused of.
Will they require that his windows facing the schoolyard be boarded-up?
Sounds like a winning strategy to me.
Suits me fine Duncan.
I thought that if you are on house arrest, you aren’t allowed to cross the threshold . (front, back, & side doors). If he in on his porch or patio, he has crossed the threshold.
House arrest isn’t meant to be a party. He’s not supposed to be able to do anything he wants. He has way more freedom that he would have in a jail cell (ie. he eats what he wants, when he wants, moves about freely, etc.).
The fact that he goes outside when the kids are at recess gives me the willies. He is a sick man!
Well, they could always clap him into a prison cell while he awaits trial. They wouldn't have to board that up.
I think that quite a few less-well-connected men get that treatment after being accused of similar behavior.
That makes more sense to me.
Yup - make him stay indoors and watch Disney children's shows all day long...
Sick, sick, sick.
Something about the way Sandusky even talks repulses me. It’s like his voice and mouth are just oozing perversion. I can’t even stand to watch him speak when I see him on the tube. I have to turn away or change the channel. That guy is creepy...CREEPY!
