New Ruling In Penn State Abuse Scandal
STATE COLLEGE, PA. (WENY)---The judge in former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse case is ruling against a prosecution effort to rein in defense subpoenas.
Judge John Cleland issued an order Thursday that denied a prosecution motion filed a week ago that argued Sandusky's lawyers had improperly issued subpoenas.
Cleland's decision came just hours after defense lawyer Joe Amendola told the judge he was looking for information that could help counter claims that Sandusky caused psychological problems to the alleged victims.
The 68-year-old former coach awaits a June 5 trial on 52 criminal counts for alleged sexual abuse of 10 boys over 15 years.
