Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly will speak publicly for the first time since prosecuting Jerry Sandusky Thursday at a child welfare event at the University of Pennsylvania.


On the second day of UPenn's three-day conference on child welfare and regulation reform, titled “One Child, Many Hands," Kelly will discuss the landmark case as well as the future of reform.


Kelly will take part in a panel discussion on Thursday from 3:30 to 5 p.m.


The conference runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday in the Perelman School of Medicine’s new Smilow Center for Translational Research, 3400 Civic Center Blvd.

Sandusky, a former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University, was convicted in 2011 of sexually abusing children through his charity for at-risk youths over a 15-year period.
