Sandusky Case: Attorney General's Office Asks Court To Deny Defense's Motion

The Attorney General's Office filed its response to the defense's pre-trial motions Friday in the Jerry Sandusky case, and asked the court to deny the defense's request. 

Prosecutors requested the court deny Sandusky's request to dismiss all charges against him.

Due to a lack of a factual record, since Sandusky waived his preliminary hearing, the court should be obliged to deny his request, the Attorney General's Office said.

Prosecutors said Sandusky's claim that the allegations against him are too vague should be dismissed because of the sensitive information involved in a child sex abuse case. 

The Attorney General's Office also asked that the defense's motion to compel be denied or considered satisfied. 

Earlier at 12:07 p.m. 

On Friday morning, Centre County District Judge Pamela Ruest authorized the Centre County Probation and Parole Department to turn over certain documents regarding Victims 3 and 7.

Documents to be turned over include court orders, letters from the district attorney and letters from the Probation and Parole Department and any other court appearance documents. 

Victims' social security numbers are to be redacted, according to court documents.

Items to be excluded from disclosure include school records that reveal psychological evaluations, individual education plans and behavioral reports.

Internal notes exchanged between the Probation and Parole Department are to be withheld, as are drug and alcohol treatment reports and doctor-provided medical information.

On Monday afternoon, Ruest ordered the Probation and Parole Department to turn over similar documents related to Victim 10.
