A hearing Monday is set to decide how much information should be turned over to the attorneys for Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant coach charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse, MyFoxPhilly.com reported.

Last week, a judge ruled to give Sandusky's lawyer detailed testimony from the grand jury 10 days before the trial.

Local trial expert attorney Lou D'Onofrio said that detailed grand jury report should help Sandusky’s defense.

“What his defense is seeking are the notes of testimony from the witnesses. … it could be a tell-all,” D’Onofrio told the station.

He says the release of detailed information could hurt the prosecution’s case.

The Sandusky trial will start in May, and he will not be at the hearing in Bellefonte, Pa., on Monday.
