HARRISBURG -- A Pennsylvania judge has named a special prosecutor to examine whether secrecy rules were violated in relation to the grand jury that investigated Jerry Sandusky and three former Penn State administrators who face criminal charges.

The Associated Press today obtained the Feb. 8 order in which Judge Barry Feudale appointed attorney James M. Reeder, giving him six months to look into the matter.

The order relates to the Dauphin County Fourth Investigating Grand Jury, the 36th Statewide Investigating Grand Jury and the 33rd Statewide Investigating Grand Jury, which issued reports in 2011 and 2012 that led to molestation charges against Sandusky and perjury charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz.
