Jerry Sandusky Scandal

No motion filed to move location of Sandusky trial

Jerry Sandusky is slated to stand trial in Centre, and so far, no one has filed any motion asking that the trial be moved elsewhere.

A CBS television station in Harrisburg Monday reported  Dauphin County Sheriff Jack Lotwick as saying people — he did not specify who — had expressed interest in moving the trial from Bellefonte to Harrisburg. But that cannot happen until either the defense or prosecution file a motion for a change of venue, according to the Centre County Court of Common Pleas.

No such motion had been filed Monday afternoon. 

Dauphin County is where former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz are slated to stand trial on perjury and failure to report abuse charges.

McKean County Senior Judge John M. Cleland has been appointed to preside in Centre County over the trial of Sandusky, who is charged with 52 counts alleging he sexually abused 10 boys over a 15-year period. Sandusky’s attorney, Joseph Amendola, said last week he doesn’t plan to seek a change of venue.
