BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- The former Penn State assistant football coach charged with child molestation asked for court permission Friday to see his grandchildren, visits currently prohibited under his bail conditions.

A motion filed in Centre County court seeks to allow Jerry Sandusky to contact his 11 grandchildren by email, phone, text and Skype, and to let them visit his central Pennsylvania home if accompanied by a parent.

Authorities allege Sandusky sexually abused 10 boys over a 15-year span. Sandusky has said he is innocent. He is currently under house arrest and forbidden from having contact with anyone under 18.

"Jerry's grandchildren want to see him, and he very much wants to see them," Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, wrote in an email to he Associated Press.

A 12th grandchild is expected "in the near future," according to the motion.

A judge has scheduled a hearing for Feb. 10.
