Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Jerry Sandusky attorneys seek hearing to support claims that the court rushed case

Jerry Sandusky’s defense attorneys are seeking an evidentiary hearing to support claims made in post-trial motions they filed in the case.

Sandusky’s defense team argued in post-trial motions filed in October that the court erred in not giving them enough time to prepare for the trial.

In a court document filed Thursday, defense attorney Joe Amendola requested a hearing before trial Judge John Cleland to present testimony and exhibits that support the defense’s claims.

Amendola said he believes testimony wouldn’t take longer than two hours.

The 68-year-old Sandusky, who was convicted of sexually abusing 10 young boys and sometimes on the Penn State campus, is serving 30 to 60 years in state prison.

Sandusky maintains his innocence.
