(CBS/AP) BELLFONTE, Pa. - A dispute over whether people from the State College area will be allowed to sit as jurors in Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse case is the subject of a hearing in a Pennsylvania courtroom.

Friday's proceedings in Bellfonte are also expected to address the former assistant coach's request to have contact with his grandchildren and others while he awaits trial on 52 criminal counts.

Prosecutors want bail conditions toughened for the 68-year-old Sandusky, so that he wouldn't be able to leave his home except for medical treatment.

Other matters Judge John Cleland must decide include how much information prosecutors should have to turn over to Sandusky's defense team and how quickly they have to do it.
