Judge to Jerry Sandusky:

You Can See Your Grandkids

... If Parents Consent

2/13/2012 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Alleged serial child rapist Jerry Sandusky has been cleared by a judge to visit with his grandkid
Alleged serial child rapist Jerry Sandusky -- former Penn State asst. football coach -- has been cleared by a judge to visit with his grandkids ... as long as the parents are present during the encounter.

The judge also ruled that Sandusky can receive visits from adults.

The judge was clearly feeling generous to the former football coach ... because he also shot down an attempt by prosecutors to have Sandusky confined indoors as he awaits trial due to a fear that he might rape local children.

Sandusky is already on home confinement ... but prosecutors wanted Sandusky locked indoors over fears that he might make an effort to contact kids at an elementary school behind his home.  

Seriously, elementary school behind his home. Your stomach turning yet?

But the judge ruled there was not enough evidence to prove Sandusky was making "any effort to contact any of the children by signaling or calling to them, or that he made any gestures directed toward them, or that he acted in any inappropriate way whatsoever."

Sandusky is due back in court in May ... when he will face 52 counts of sexually assaulting boys over a 15-year span.

When child molesters go house hunting an elementary school close by is just as important as a private driveway.

Am I missing crucial information? Wasn't it the parents stopping the children from visiting him in the first place? If so, then this order makes no difference if the parents object and won't take the kids.

He has all these counts of sexual assault on children and they are allowing him to stay at his home, with an Elementary school near by? This is sick! I don't care if he has or has not tried contacting any of the kids in this school... It's disgusting he is being allowed to be that close. I have a problem with this. He should be confined inside.

I'm SICK of these celebs or high profile people getting special treatment. If what Sandusky did was just a layman this wouldn't even have gone to court. Another example is having Chris Brown on the Grammy's last night. He physically abused Rhihana. Once an abuser always an abuser. They say they're sorry but it means nothing! I was abused way back when and it still hurts today. U never get over it. But since Chris is a celeb he gets a get out of jail free card. Makes me sick just looking at him. A precedent should be set. What's good for one is good for all no matter what ur status is. I'm truly pissed.

F_ck that. If I found out that MY Dad was a child-chasing pedophile, he would never see his grandkids (or me) ever again. Sorry.

This guy is a total POS with no shame and remosrse for what he did and no regret or apologies for all the lives he destroyed from Paterno to all those kids he raped. Just neuter the bastard already.

You bet my stomach is turning knowing that sick b@stard lives right near an elementary school! But everyone knows about him now, and I am sure the faculty, staff and parents of the kids at that school know exactly what he looks like so they can warn the kids to STAY AWAY from him!

He's disgusting, and the judge is a pedo-sympathizer because he's probably one too
