HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky wants jurors in his child sex abuse trial to be chosen from the community where he lives.

Attorney Joe Amendola filed court documents Wednesday opposing a request by the state attorney general’s office to bring in out-of-county jurors.

Amendola says publicity about Sandusky’s case has been so pervasive that jurors from other counties will also have been saturated with news coverage. He says there’s no better place than Centre County to pick jurors for Sandusky’s trial.

The filings also suggested that a trial delay might be the best way to address the case’s intense publicity.

A message seeking comment from prosecutors wasn’t immediately returned.

Sandusky is accused of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year span. He denies the allegations.
