(Harrisburg) -- The judge presiding over Jerry Sandusky's criminal case is granting a television network's request for access to photos used as exhibits during his trial this summer.

Judge John Cleland has issued an order giving ABC the right to get copies of 15 photographs related to Aaron Fisher, described as Victim 1 in court records.

ABC had sought the photos last month, as it was preparing to report on Fisher's book about his experience, "Silent No More."

Cleland's order notes that Sandusky's lawyer, Fisher, his mother and prosecutors supported or at least didn't object to the release.

The judge says he'll consider future requests on their own merits. His order includes a request form and instructions.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence for abusing Fisher and nine other boys.
