(Harrisburg) --  Jerry Sandusky will take part in his first public proceeding next month, via video link, since he was sentenced to decades in prison for child molestation. 

A hearing is scheduled for January seventh into whether Pennsylvania should have stripped the former Penn State defensive coordinator of his public worker pension.

A spokeswoman for the State Employees' Retirement System says plans are for Sandusky to participate in the three-day hearing through a video connection to the state prison where he is confined.

Sandusky lost his $4,900 a month pension last year on the day he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years. 

A hearing examiner will recommend to the system's board about whether the pension forfeiture should remain in place.
