Sandusky defense court filing suggests 8 more accusers may have surfaced in sex abuse case
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) ' New documents filed by the attorneys for former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky suggest there are at least 17 accusers in the sex abuse case, a much higher number than described in criminal charges.
The requests were attached to a motion filed Thursday by Sandusky defense attorney Joe Amendola that asks the supervising judge to mandate more disclosure of investigative materials.
The criminal charges against the former Penn State assistant football coach pertain to boys named as Victims 1 through 10 in court records.
One request seeks information on "uncharged conduct evidence," while the other pertains to employment records.
Amendola co-counsel Karl Rominger says the requests were based on information the defense had previously received.
