Sandusky’s lawyer asks for records

Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer wants psychological reports, juvenile

arrest records and other documents about his client’s accusers to

prepare for trial in the child sexual abuse case.

Defense attorney Joe Amendola on Friday filed a 17-page response

that says several of the alleged victims used drugs and alcohol as

juveniles, which may have affected their memories.

Amendola wants a report by a psychologist related to the person

described as Victim 6 in a grand jury report, because he believes

it contains a conclusion that the boy wasn’t sexually abused by

Sandusky.

Prosecutors didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking

comment. The sides are battling over what must be disclosed prior

to Sandusky’s trial on 52 counts.

Sandusky is on home arrest awaiting a mid-May scheduled start of

trial. He’s denied the allegations.
