A special prosecutor will examine whether secrecy rules were violated in proceedings by the grand jury that investigated Jerry Sandusky and three former Penn State administrators who are currently facing criminal charges.
Commonwealth Court Judge Barry Feudale has given lawyer James M. Reeder six months to look into the matter and issue a report to state officials. The order, revealed on Wednesday, relates to a grand jury that issued reports in 2011 and 2012 that led to molestation charges against Sandusky and perjury charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz.
But because grand juries often work on more than one matter, it was unclear whether the possible secrecy violations were related to the Penn State cases or other cases before the panel. Feudale has been trying to sort out a legal dispute involving whether former Penn State lawyer Cynthia Baldwin represented the university or Spanier, Curley and Schultz at a grand jury proceeding in 2011.
Feudale wants to know if Baldwin represented the three men and then later appeared as a key witness against them at a grand jury proceeding.
