Sandusky Lawyers to Argue Trial Fairness
who sentenced Jerry Sandusky to at least 30 years in prison is about to hear
defense lawyers and prosecutors argue over whether the former Penn State
assistant football coach got a fair trial.
The proceeding Thursday in Bellefonte
includes a debate over whether Sandusky's lawyers had enough time to prepare
for the trial that resulted in a 45-count guilty verdict.
Sandusky says Judge John Cleland should
have issued jury instructions about how long it took his victims to report abuse.
He's also challenging hearsay testimony by
a janitorial supervisor who told jurors that a co-worker had seen Sandusky
raping a boy.
Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year state
prison sentence, but maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals.
