The vehicle is there to pick up one of the victims in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case. A canvas (background) is used to form a tunnel from the courthouse to the vehicle. The tunnel shields victims from photographers as they leave the courthouse.

BELLEFONTE – The "Tickle Monster" will be going to prison, most likely for the remainder of his life.
Jerry Sandusky, 68, convicted in June of molesting 10 young boys over a 15-year period, was sentenced Tuesday to spend a minimum of 30 years in prison. 
Senior Trial Judge John Cleland of Kane handed down the sentence at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.
