A Pennsylvania judge is giving former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky three days of hearings in August to develop more information about the claims and arguments he's made in seeking to have his child molestation conviction overturned.
Media groups have asked a Philadelphia judge to unseal insurance documents that could address whether Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was told in the mid-1970s that his assistant was molesting boys.
Prosecutors are dismissing as unreliable allegations that two assistant coaches at Penn State witnessed Jerry Sandusky having inappropriate or sexual contact with children in the late 1980s, more than two decades before his arrest and conviction as a serial child abuser.
A new legal document that claims a boy told Joe Paterno in 1976 that Jerry Sandusky had molested him has dropped like a bombshell and reignited debate about what the Penn State coach knew about his longtime assistant decades before his arrest.
A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday gave convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky a hearing later this month to prove his claims that prosecutors lied, withheld evidence and leaked secret grand jury information to find additional victims.
Jerry Sandusky's effort to get his child molestation convictions thrown out ran into tough questioning Monday from a judge who voiced doubt about defense lawyers are entitled to question witnesses -- including some of the former Penn State assistant football coach's victims.
The estate of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno should have to turn over background details on a 2013 "critique" produced for his family in response to a university-commissioned report that criticized his handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, college sports' governing body argued Friday.
Pennsylvania's state government pension system will send Jerry Sandusky a $211,000 check next week to cover payments going back to when it illegally stopped his retirement benefits after the former Penn State assistant football coach was sentenced for child molestation, according to a letter obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press.
