Sandusky Case: Court Filing Mentions at Least 17 Accusers, Nine Documents Removed from Paterno's Office

by on May 04, 2012 8:00 PM

In a court motion filed Thursday, Jerry Sandusky's lead defense attorney, Joseph Amendola, makes mention of at least 17 possible accusers in the child sexual abuse case.

In his motion, Amendola asked prosecutors to turn over information regarding "possible accusers who have been identified as Nos. 11 through 17 as well as those whose identification are numbered from 18 and beyond."

This would suggest more people have come forward claiming they were abused by Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator.

A discovery request dated April 16 asked for information on "uncharged conduct evidence," while one filed April 23 pertained to employment records.

Ten alleged victims are mentioned in the criminal charges filed against Sandusky, who is set to stand trial in June on 52 counts in a child sexual abuse case.

Also, on a discovery request dated March 27, Amendola sought nine documents taken from former football coach Joe Paterno's office and copied by state police.

Amendola wrote that the documents had undergone a "supervised review" and been protected by a "police seal of evidence."

There is no indication as to what the documents pertained to.
