A judge on Thursday granted a request by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky that the court return to his wife the $50,000 she put up for his bail before he was convicted this summer of sexually abusing nearly a dozen boys.
Judge John Cleland signed the order that refunded the bail to Dottie Sandusky and released the court's hold on the couple's home, as a promissory note against the home had been put up as $200,000 collateral.
Mr. Sandusky, 68, has been in a county jail since his June conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse against 10 boys, some on campus. He is to be sentenced next week.
