Jury selection begins Wednesday for the trial of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach charged with sexually abusing at least eight boys over the course of 15 years, some of them on the Penn State campus.

Given the amount of publicity the case has received, jury selection could take several days. Sandusky, 68, entered a not guilty plea and has been under house arrest since he was charged.
