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
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.
