Jerry Sandusky’s attorney Karl Rominger filed a petition for review and application for a stay with the Superior Court in Harrisburg on Thursday, five days before jury selection is scheduled to begin in Sandusky’s child sexual abuse case.

The online docket doesn’t explain the nature of the petition.

Sandusky attorney Joe Amendola has declined to comment, citing a gag order. A spokesman for the attorney general’s office won’t comment.

The 68-year-old Sandusky is accused of molesting 10 boys, some on campus. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Penn State’s president says the university is trying hard to put the child sex abuse scandal in its rearview mirror and is healing.
