HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - 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 currently facing criminal charges.
Judge Barry Feudale ordered the appointment of attorney James Reeder on Feb. 8. His four-page order was obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Pennsylvania investigative grand juries often work on more than one matter, and it wasn't clear from the document whether the possible secrecy violations were related the Penn State cases or other cases the same jury examined.
Feudale has recently been trying to sort out a legal dispute involving whether former Penn State lawyer Cynthia Baldwin should have been present at a grand jury proceeding, and the order referenced a rule that governs such matters.
