Sandusky And Charges
March 23, 2012 by staff
Sandusky And Charges, Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky asked a judge Thursday to throw out the child sex abuse charges against him, arguing some counts are not specific enough, evidence is lacking in others and the statute of limitations may have run out regarding eight of the 10 alleged victims.
The catch-all pretrial motion also sought to delay the May 14 start of Sandusky’s triale.
Nils Frederiksen, a spokesman for the state attorney general’s office, said the document was under review, and prosecutors planned to respond in writing within a week.
Sandusky is confined to his home in State College while awaiting trial, and has denied the allegations against him.
The filing argues that a June search of Sandusky’s home was illegal and seeks to prevent prosecutors from using the material. That search yielded computers, records, CDs, DVDs, photos and other items.
Amendola said Sandusky may have an alibi defense, but so far has not been provided enough specifics about the allegations to know for sure. He asked Cleland to force disclosure of any juvenile adjudication records of all potential witnesses.
