      Dallas, TX

When Jerry Sandusky was initially arraigned, as previously reported by Sara Ganim, prosecutors requested $500,000.00 bail and that Sandusky be required to wear a leg monitor. District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, however, ordered that Sandusky be freed on $100,000.00 unsecured bail. She ordered that Sandusky be freed and pay nothing unless he failed to show up for a court hearing. According to her profile, Judge Dutchcot is a volunteer for Sandusky's group, The Second Mile.

      it sets a horrible precedent for other academic communities across the U.S. for Sandusky to walk free, with the weight of 'probable cause' against him. It is also intimidating to potential witnesses with Sandusky to be grand-standing around, as though we all should now overwhelmingly presume him innocent of all but the very least serious charges against him. Centre County, PA now appears too tainted by PSU football culture, not to have all legal proceedings, in fairness to Judge Dutchcot, moved at least a hundred miles away from State College.

      Why?? Obviously this woman is involved & she should be immediately suspended! Any normal Judge who has a bit of common sense & has read the Grand Jury statement would of at least placed a monitor. This monster she set free will do it again. It's on her head if another child is murdered. Yes murdered for what this man did he murdered any innocence any trust from this child. She should be ashamed. I am completely disgusted with this woman. She doesnt deserve to be called a Judge.
