Sandusky Defense Ordered to Explain Reasons for Appeal Within 21 Days
Karl Rominger, co-counsel for Jerry Sandusky, has 21 days to file a motion explaining his reasons for filing an appeal, per an order signed by Judge John Cleland Wednesday.
The previous Concise Statement of Matters Complained of on Appeal has been stricken from the record, Cleland said, and Rominger now has to comply with the motion filed by the Attorney General's Office so that his motion follows Pennsylvania judicial guidelines.
Any issue "not properly included in the concise statement of matters complained of on appeal and timely filed ... shall be waived," Cleland wrote.
Sandusky, 68, was convicted on June 22 on 45 of 48 counts of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period. He awaits sentencing pending fulfilling all necessary psychological evaluations while currently incarcerated at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
