Sandusky Pre-Trial Hearing to be Held Today

A pre-trial hearing has been set for 11 a.m. today in Bellefonte, where Jerry Sandusky’s defense team will argue for a more specific Bill of Particulars. Last week, upon the order of Judge John Cleland, the prosecution released a Bill of Particulars that included a list of the identities of the ten alleged victims, as well as the dates, times, and locations where the alleged crimes were committed.

However, a significant portion of the information was vague or not included, and two of the victims have not been identified. Joe Amendola, Sandusky’s lead defense attorney, has requested that the prosecution turn over their knowledge of the times and locations when the alleged offenses occurred.

The hearing is expected to be short, and the Patriot News has reported that Sandusky will not be in attendance. Jury selection for the trial, the next step in the legal proceedings against Sandusky, is set to begin on May 14.
