Sandusky Case Judge Volunteered for His Charity, Deadspin Says

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The judge who ignored a prosecutor’s request and ordered Jerry Sandusky released on $100,000 bail has worked for the charity of the former Penn State assistant coach, who’s accused of child sex abuse, sports website Deadspin said.

District judge Leslie Dutchcot ruled that the 67-year-old could pay nothing unless he failed to attend a court hearing, the website said. Prosecutors had asked for Sandusky’s bail to be set at $500,000.

A profile of the judge on her former law firm’s Internet site said she was a volunteer for Sandusky’s foundation, The Second Mile, Deadspin said.

The former defensive coordinator was charged Nov. 5 with the sexual assault of eight boys from 1994 to 2009.
