School district wants Sandusky subpoena thrown out
April 30, 2012

A central Pennsylvania school district on Monday asked the judge overseeing Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse case to throw out a defense subpoena seeking information that pertains to an alleged victim of the former Penn State assistant football coach.

The motion by Lock Haven-based Keystone Central School District argued that the subpoena was not lawful and asked Judge John Cleland to either invalidate it or issue a protective order.

The dispute concerns the young man described as "Victim 1" in court records. A grand jury report issued in November said Victim 1 had testified that he was molested repeatedly, allegations Sandusky has denied.

Sandusky's lawyers sent a subpoena to the district superintendent seeking numerous school records about the man, including IQ test results, discipline records, grade reports, attendance records and certain investigative records, among other things.

"Because the defendant has failed to articulate a foundation as to the reasonableness, materiality and justiciability of his subpoena, it is not lawfully issued and therefore any corresponding request for educational records should be denied and/or quashed," wrote David I. Lindsay, the school district's lawyer.
 ::snipping2::
The school district's motion said communications between a student and guidance counselor, or with a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, are confidential under state law, and that federal law governs disclosure of educational records.

Lindsay said in a phone interview Monday that the wording of the protective order would be up to Cleland but he wanted it to "protect the privacy rights of the child."

On Friday, the state attorney general's office said in a court filing that the defense team was improperly issuing subpoenas and using them for a fishing expedition. Prosecutors also objected to the defense including the names of alleged victims on the subpoenas.

Earlier Monday, Cleland issued an order giving Sandusky's lawyers until Thursday morning to respond. The judge said he would either rule based on the record or schedule oral argument in the matter.

Sandusky Case: Keystone Central School District Files to Have Subpoena Quashed
By Laura Nichols
April 30, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Judge John M. Cleland signed an order Monday morning that said the defense will have until 10 a.m. Thursday to respond to the prosecution's claim that the defense is improperly using its subpoena power.

The one-page document simply states that once a response is filed in response to the prosecution's motion, the judge will make a judgement based on "the two pleadings filed, or may order oral argument to be held at a later date."

On Friday, the Attorney General's office filed a motion asking that Jerry Sanduksy's attorney, Joe Amendola, stop immediately filing certain subpoenas and withdraw those of the same nature. 

Subpoenas issued to Pennsylvania State Police, Penn State Police, the superintendent of Central Mountain School District and the US Department of Labor and Industry call for the recipient to appear in the Centre County Courthouse on May 16, for a scheduled pretrial status conference, in which no testimony will be given, according to a court motion filed Friday.

Amendola denied any wrongdoing on Friday, but could not comment further as per the gag order issued by Judge Cleland.

The Second Mile joins request to block Jerry Sandusky subpoenas
By Sara Ganim, The Patriot-News
May 1, 2012

A fourth motion to block subpoenas issued by Jerry Sandusky's defense team in preparation for his trial June 5 has beenmade.

The Second Mile, the children's charity that Sandusky started in 1977 and the place where prosecutors say he met most of the 10 alleged victims listed in a grand jury presentment, is asking a judge to block Sandusky's request for information about the alleged victims.
 ::snipping2::
Also today, The Mifflin County School District where alleged Victim 9 was a student during the time he says Sandusky abused him, filed a similar motion to block subpoenas for student records. Monday, Keystone Central School District in Clinton County, where alleged Victim 1 attended, filed the same request.

Both districts say that state and federal laws protect them from divulging information about student IQ, grades, psychological testing, absentee and discipline records.

State prosecutors also filed a sweeping motion to have many of Sandusky's subpoenas thrown out, saying they were used improperly.

Sandusky attorneys fight over subpoenas and evidence
Michael Gorsegner
May 2, 2012

BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY—
Just one month until the start of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial and the two sides continue to argue over evidence. The Attorney General's Office and several groups are fighting against subpoenas sent out by the defense.

The subpoenas were sent out by the defense and asks for more information from several school districts and even the State Police Commissioner and Penn State Police Departments. Jerry Sandsuky's attorneys are trying to build a defense while the prosecution claims this goes way too far.
 ::snipping2::
"What is Joe Amendola going to argue? He is going to argue that I can't put on a defense, I am hampered in my defense," said legal analyst Steven Breit.

Over the past two days, three groups have filed motions fighting the subpoenas. The Central Mountain and Mifflin County School Districts, along with the Second Mile, filed motions to quash the subpoenas claiming they are too broad and far reaching. The defense is looking for information like school records of the accusers.

"All this in an effort, it would seem, to prevent victims from having their day in court," said Senior Deputy Attorney General Joseph McGettigan.

The prosecution says these attempts could threaten the secrecy of the victims. In a filing, the McGettigan called the move a "spectacular irresponsibility of treating secret information in that fashion."

"We have victims to present and we will one day present them. You will hear their testimony live in court," said McGettigan.
 ::snipping2::
The judge in the case is asking for all filings to be complete by 10 am tomorrow. From there, he will rule on these motions either by writing or he could call a hearing to listen to oral arguments. Right now, the trial is set to begin with jury selection on June 5.

Sandusky case judge rules against AG on subpoenas
May 3, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The judge in Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse case ruled against prosecutors Thursday in their bid to get subpoenas issued by his lawyer thrown out and to impose future restrictions on their use.

Judge John Cleland's one-sentence order denied a motion filed last week by the attorney general's office in which they had argued lawyers for the former Penn State assistant football coach were improperly using the subpoenas on a fishing expedition.

Cleland ruled hours after Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola filed a 20-page response that described and defended the demands for information he has issued to police, schools and other institutions in preparation for next month's trial.

Cleland's order did not make reference to similar subpoena-quashing requests filed by two school districts and Juniata College. A hearing has been scheduled for next week on the topic.

Also Thursday, Amendola filed a "motion to compel" that asked Cleland to order the release of prosecution materials "forthwith," and Cleland promptly directed the attorney general's office to provide materials that are not in dispute before the Wednesday hearing, and to tell him in writing by the end of the day Monday if there are any remaining conflicts.

If there are, Cleland said he will deal with them at the hearing in the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte next week.

New PSU trustees elected in Sandusky aftermath
May 4, 2012

TATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State alumni elected three new members to the university board of trustees, including a well-known former football player who recovered from a spinal cord injury and a businessman who has criticized the board's actions after Jerry Sandusky's arrest in a child sex-abuse scandal.

Alumni elected lawyer Adam Taliaferro, who played for the late coach Joe Paterno; prominent donor and outspoken board critic Anthony Lubrano; and retired U.S. Navy captain Ryan McCombie.

Election results were announced Friday following more than three weeks of online voting that drew a record turnout of at least 37,000. The new trustees begin their three-year terms July 1.

Did Sandusky abuse EIGHT more victims? Court documents 'reveal total of 18 accusers have come forward'

There may be more accusers than originally thought in the Penn State University scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with sexually abusing 10 boys, according to court filings.

In legal papers filed on Thursday in Common Pleas Court in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, a reference to 'accusers 11 through 17 as well as 18 through an unknown number,' was made by Sandusky attorney Joseph Amendola.

Sandusky, 68, is charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse involving 10 boys, identified only as Victims 1-10.

The reference to additional accusers was made in letters Amendola wrote to prosecutors. The letters were filed ahead of a hearing on Wednesday before Judge John Cleland in Bellefonte regarding subpoenas filed by the defense.
Prosecutors have accused Amendola of improperly using subpoena powers to go on a 'fishing expedition' for information that can help Sandusky with his defense.  ::snipping2::

Hazing on campus: A national epidemic comes to Penn State
May 6, 2012


 ::snipping2::
When they got home, mother and daughter began calling police and Penn State.

They say they immediately noticed a parallel with the kind of defensiveness and lack of transparency for which the university had been harshly criticized during the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Penn State seemed to distance itself from allegations against Sandusky in 2002 because, technically, he was no longer an employee, Trowell said.


Omega Psi Phi isn’t a registered fraternity, so Trowell said she was initially told there was little they could do to regulate it.

Mahon, the university spokesman, said the university student conduct process is separate from a criminal process. "Omega Psi Phi is not a recognized Penn State organization. They have no status as a university fraternity," he said. "Our process does not investigate crimes — that is the responsibility of law enforcement and the courts. Ours focuses on a violation of the student code of conduct."

Coates said she scheduled a meeting with university police, but when she arrived at Penn State, she was told everyone was too busy to meet. So far, all the interviews with Trowell and her mother have been by phone.

It was only after the family hired an attorney and spoke out publicly that Judicial Affairs decided to suspend graduation for the seniors allegedly involved and begin the process for a conduct hearing.

"It’s reactive, not proactive," said Scott Cooper, one of Trowell’s attorneys.

"Excuses and minimalization," said co-counsel, Joel Wiest.

PSU admins want charges nixed in Sandusky case
MARK SCOLFORO, Associated Press
May 4, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Penn State administrators charged with lying to the grand jury investigating Jerry Sandusky filed court documents Friday that argued prosecutors have not produced enough evidence to support the perjury charges against them.

Athletic director Tim Curley, now on leave, and retired vice president for business Gary Schultz outlined the reasons they believe charges should be thrown out.

Curley's filing cited what he called "a shifting sand approach" by prosecutors and said the court record so far did not include the basic elements needed for a perjury case to proceed.

Schultz's reply called the case "unprovable, unfounded and untimely" and said prosecutors acted prematurely with an exaggerated grand jury presentment to tarnish them with the child sexual abuse allegations against Sandusky.

Both men argued that prosecutors are not specific enough in the allegations they have made.
 ::snipping2::
Also Friday, lawyers for the Clinton County Department of Children and Youth Services and the Bald Eagle School District asked the judge in Sandusky's criminal case to throw out subpoenas issued by Sandusky's lawyers.

The Clinton County motion said that neither agency director Gerald Rosamilia nor psychologist Michael Gillum should have to produce records, arguing the material is confidential and protected by law.

AG changes Sandusky shower allegation date to '01
By MARK SCOLFORO
Associated Press
May 7, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania prosecutors said Monday they now believe the alleged locker-room shower assault of a boy by Jerry Sandusky that ultimately led to football coach Joe Paterno's firing took place a year earlier than they first claimed, prompting attorneys for two Penn State administrators call for dismissal of one of the charges.

The attorney general's office said in a court filing that investigators have concluded the alleged attack took place around Feb. 9, 2001. Previously filed court documents, including a grand jury report issued before the former Penn State assistant coach's arrest in November, dated it March 1, 2002.
 ::snipping2::
Curley, the athletic director who is on leave, and Schultz, a university vice president who has retired, are fighting allegations that they lied to a grand jury and failed to properly report suspected child abuse. Defense attorneys Caroline Roberto and Tom Farrell issued a statement Monday night accusing prosecutors of filing charges in the case before knowing the facts.

"Now, it is clear that Mike McQueary was wrong in so adamantly insisting that the incident happened the Friday before Spring Break in 2002," their statement said. "Whether or not Mr. McQueary's insistence was the result of faulty memory, or questionable credibility, there is no dispute that the statute of limitations has expired on (the failure to report charge), and it will be dismissed."

The judge in the case has issued a gag order prohibiting lawyers from both sides from speaking about the Sandusky case.

Scranton defense lawyer Joseph D'Andrea, who is not involved in the Sandusky case, said the one-year time change may not affect the prosecution, assuming all other relevant facts remain consistent. He said recollections of dates over a 10-12 year time span are naturally imperfect.

"If all the other facts match up to be identical, I think it's just an error without any harm for the prosecution," D'Andrea said. "However, if there are other inconsistencies, it gives the defense a reason to create some doubt about the credibility, sincerity, honesty and true recollection of what McQueary had to say."

Reached by phone, McQueary's father John McQueary declined comment on his son's behalf.

The prosecution filing Monday comes ahead of a hearing on Wednesday in Bellefonte regarding defense subpoenas and any remaining disputes over what material must be disclosed to the defense.

Jerry Sandusky Sex Abuse Case: Penn State prosecutors change date of key allegation
May 8, 2012

(CBS/AP) HARRISBURG, Pa. - Prosecutors have changed the date of a key allegation of assault in the case of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, according to new court documents.
Previously, prosecutors had filed documents, including a grand jury report, alleging that Sandusky sexually assaulted a boy in a Penn State locker room shower on March 1, 2002. But new filings indicate that investigators have now concluded the alleged attack took place around Feb. 9, 2001.
