There's a new judge assigned to Jerry Sandusky's trial, which involves dozens of child rape and molestation charges. The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts has assigned Judge Robert Scott to preside over the case after questions arose about District Judge Leslie Dutchcot's ties to Sandusky.
Dutchcot came under fire when she released the former Penn State assistant football coach on $100,000 bail, despite the prosecutor's requests. It was later discovered that Dutchcot had volunteered with Sandusky's charity The Second Mile and even received campaign donations from the group.
The press release announcing the replacement says Judge Scott has no known ties to Penn State University or The Second Mile.
