    Latest Jerry Sandusky appeals hearing focuses on victim memories

    Updated 19 mins ago - May 11, 2017

    BELLEFONTE, Pa. (WPVI) -- Jerry Sandusky is arguing his former defense lawyers didn't properly represent him and wants a do-over of the 2012 trial that produced a 45-count conviction for child sexual abuse.

    A judge in central Pennsylvania on Thursday heard more testimony in the former Penn State assistant football coach's multi-hearing appeal.

    The latest witnesses include one of the victims who testified against Sandusky. He says his memories of the abuse changed in part because of therapy and counseling.

    A witness for Sandusky was a psychology professor who specializes in human memory.

    A lawyer who represented Sandusky in earlier appeals also took the stand.

    Judge cancels Sandusky evidentiary hearing for Friday

    There will not be a Jerry Sandusky hearing on Friday

    May 25, 2017

    On Thursday, the Centre County prothonotary’s office posted an order from Jefferson County Judge John Foradora.

    Foradora is specially presiding in Centre County over the post-conviction phase of Sandusky’s criminal case since the recusal of McKean County Senior Judge John Cleland. His order canceled the hearing that had been scheduled back in March. His order said the hearing was canceled "due to the fact that all witnesses and testimony regarding the issues raised has been presented."

    The evidentiary hearings were part of Sandusky’s Post-conviction Collateral Relief Act petition, as the retired Penn State defensive coordinator seeks a new trial. Sandusky was convicted of 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse in 2012.

    Sandusky’s attorney, Al Lindsay, who lobbied hard for the right to have those hearings, confirmed that his side was done presenting evidence.

    After the transcripts of the last hearing on May 11 are made available, the defense will have 30 days to prepare final arguments on findings of fact and conclusions of law.

    Two Penn State ex-officials begin jail terms in Sandusky case
    Saturday July 15th, 2017
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Two former high-ranking Penn State administrators surrendered Saturday morning to serve jail sentences for how they responded to a 2001 complaint about Jerry Sandusky showering with a boy.
    Former university vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley turned themselves in, according to Lt. Michael Woods, the shift commander at the Centre County Correctional Facility. Wood confirmed their surrender, but said he was not authorized to release any other details from the jail, which is about 135 miles (217 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh. The lockup is about 7 miles (11 kilometers) northeast of Penn State's main campus.

    Schultz and Curley pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment in March, leading prosecutors to drop three felony charges of child endangerment and conspiracy.
    Curley, 63, must serve three months in jail, while Schultz, 67, has two months behind bars. Jail officials said they will be evaluated for participation in work release while incarcerated.
    A co-defendant, former Penn State president Graham Spanier, 68, was convicted of the same offense and faces two months in jail. Spanier remains free on bail while he appeals to Superior Court.
    Spanier continues to be a tenured faculty member and is on administrative leave. A deal with the university when he was forced out as president after Sandusky's arrest in November 2011 pays him $600,000 a year, ending this fall, after which he will receive a salary.
    The three men received a complaint from a graduate assistant football coach in February 2001 who said he was highly disturbed by seeing Sandusky appear to sexually abuse the boy late on a Friday night in a team shower.

    They are all guilty of FELONIES. There should be NO PLEA DEALS where child abuse is confirmed and on top of that could have been prevented in the future, as was this case with that pond scum Sandusky.
    Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    I absolutely agree with you, MissW. It well past the time that money/power quits talking and the law is enforced without all the loopholes and bullsh!t technicalities. This case (among others) has become a legal sham. SMH
