Sandusky granted court date to prove claims for a new trial
CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. – Judge John M. Cleland ordered that hearing be held on Friday, May 20th, to allow attorney’s for Jerry Sandusky to prove that their client deserves a new trial.
As part of a Post Conviction Relief Act Petition, defense lawyers allege that the prosecution lied in the closing arguments about not knowing the name of one of the victims. That the presiding judge withheld material from Sandusky’s defense counsel and the Office of the Attorney General leaked secret grand jury information for the purpose of locating additional victims of Sandusky’s crimes.
Judge Cleland set the hearing to begin at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 1 of the Centre County Courthouse.
