HARRISBURG, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky is participating by video link as he tries to get back the retirement benefits he lost after he was convicted of child molestation.

The proceeding Tuesday at the headquarters of the State Employees' Retirement System in Harrisburg involves the pension the 69-year-old earned while working as a Penn State assistant football coach.

Sandusky is in a prison in southwestern Pennsylvania. His wife, Dottie, is in the hearing room.

Hearing examiner Michael Bangs is starting by going over the procedures.

Sandusky's $4,900-a-month pension ended the day he was sentenced in October 2012 to 30 to 60 years for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
