UPDATED: Sandusky Attorney Appeals to Delay Trial…Again
UPDATED June 1 at 3:38 pm:
The petition was denied today by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. Jury selection for the trial is still set for June 5.
In a last-ditch effort to delay his client’s trial, Jerry Sandusky’s co-counsel Karl Rominger has filed a petition to the Superior Court in Harrisburg to postpone the start date, which is set to begin June 11.
The docket, which can be found here, was filed late Thursday. This isn’t the first time Sandusky’s defense has requested a delay in the trial, as his attorney Joe Amendola has argued previously that he needs more time to investigate all of the 52 charges against his client.
Jury selection is set to begin June 5.
