(Bellefonte) -- A judge is allowing former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to leave his state prison cell in order to appear next week at a court hearing.

Judge John Cleland has signed the order permitting Sandusky to travel January 10 from the State Correctional Institution at Greene in western Pennsylvania to the hearing at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte. He was convicted in Centre County court in June on 45 counts of child sexual abuse involving 10 boys.

Sandusky will be picked up and transported by Centre County sheriff's deputies. The hearing will address Sandusky's post-sentencing motions. Sandusky maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals.

Authorities have said Sandusky molested victims inside university facilities, area hotels and inside his home.
