Jerry Sandusky Scandal

New Sandusky lawyer refused entrance to Friday’s hearing

HARRISBURG — One of Jerry Sandusky’s lawyers said he wasn’t allowed in the courtroom to hear testimony at Friday’s preliminary hearing for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

Karl Rominger told The Associated Press that the decision was “a little unfair” even though the judge had the right to bar him.

Rominger apparently didn’t participate in the advance process for requesting assigned seats.

Rominger said he wasn’t asking to bump anyone else from the courtroom and was also prohibited from sitting in an overflow room.

Joe Amendola, the attorney for Sandusky, said he couldn’t comment on the testimony of prosecutors’ witnesses until he can review the transcript, which will be posted to the Dauphin County website in a few days.

“In the meantime, we are continuing with the preparation of a vigorous defense on Jerry’s defense,” Amendola wrote in an email.
