Judge Denies Sandusky’s Request for Information

Judge John Cleland ruled quickly, denying Jerry Sandusky’s request for a more specific Bill of Particulars that would include more information on the alleged victims and crimes. Yesterday, Sandusky’s legal counsel Joe Amendola argued unsuccessfully for the Commonwealth to provide more specific dates as to when the crimes occurred.

The current Bill of Particulars includes vague dates and details about the alleged sexual abuse crimes Sandusky committed against ten boys. The Commonwealth admitted that they would be unable to provide more specific information, because they did not have any more information. Therefore, Judge Cleland ruled that ordering the prosecution to provide more information would be a “futile act.”

The entire ruling made today can be found on the Centre County website. Amendola indicated that if he was denied more information, he would request that the charges against Sandusky be dropped.

Jury selection for the trial is still scheduled for May 14.
