Former Prosecutor In Case Against Jerry Sandusky Facing Discipline

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A former prosecutor who led the child molestation case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is losing his law license for a year over his handling of a grand jury witness in the case.

The court on Wednesday suspended Frank Fina's law license. Fina's own lawyer says he will seek U.S. Supreme Court review.

The state justices also are ordering a public reprimand of former Penn State general counsel Cynthia Baldwin for violating professional conduct rules in her representation of three Penn State officials and during her own grand jury testimony.

Baldwin's attorney says she "made every effort to comply" with conduct rules.
