Report: Judge Removes Himself From Jerry Sandusky Resentencing Case
Foradora was appointed to the case as an outside judge but issued an order that took him off the case and requested that Centre County Court officials find a replacement. He cited what the report called an “unspecified recent action by the state attorney general’s office” as the reasoning behind his decision. A state prosecutor and Al Lindsey, Sandusky’s defense attorney, signed a document agreeing with Foradora’s decision to remove himself from the case.
Sandusky is currently serving 30-60 years in state prison at the State Correctional Institution at Laurel Highlands after he was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse in 2012.
After a Pennsylvania Superior Court panel found that mandatory minimum penalty regulations had been improperly applied during Sandusky’s trial when he appealed for a new trial in February, the court ordered Sandusky to be resentenced.
The resentencing was originally scheduled to take place next Monday, September 23, at the Centre County Courthouse, but was delayed indefinitely for reasons unknown earlier this week.
