Jerry Sandusky will soon learn the names of the 10 young men accusing him of sex abuse. The names will be delivered to Sandusky's lawyer by Friday, the attorney general's office says. Sandusky's lawyer had requested a document outlining the names as well as times, locations, and other specifics related to the 50 criminal counts against the former Penn State defensive coordinator, the AP reports. State prosecutors counter that the facts are sufficiently presented in the grand jury reports, charging documents, and discovery materials.

On Friday, Sandusky—who was ordered by the court not to have contact with any children—requested permission to see his grandchildren if they are with a parent, the Los Angeles Times reports. Sandusky has 11 grandchildren under the age of 18. (More Jerry Sandusky stories.)
