Jerry Sandusky appeal cites several issues with case
May 6, 2015



I hope I am wrong, but when attorneys ask to be removed from a case and are not, an appeal for incompetent counsel is often a given.

 



It's my belief part of Sandusky's defenseplan  all along was to appeal on the grounds of incompetent counsel.  JMHO  I think there's some articles back in this thread somewhere that discuss this.

Commonwealth granted extension to file response in Jerry Sandusky appeal
October 12, 2015

A court has granted the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania an extension on its deadline to file a response to former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s list of discovery requests in his appeal against his child sex abuse conviction.
The commonwealth has until 9 a.m. on Oct. 22 to file its response, according to court documents filed on Monday.
In addition, the court orders that argument will proceed as scheduled on Oct. 29.
Sandusky was convicted in 2012 on 45 counts of child sex abuse and is now serving between 30 and 60 years in prison. He is now on his third, and final, appeal of his conviction.
The commonwealth filed a response to Sandusky’s third appeal on Sept. 21, asking his counsel to submit a list of discovery requests backed by legal authority.

Jerry Sandusky request to examine grand jury participants denied
November 5, 2015

Jerry Sandusky lost a round in his latest appeal Thursday, while the media spotlight was trained on an extraordinary court appearance by embattled Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

Largely because of what Kane said in that appearance, a McKean County senior judge shot down Sandusky's request for court orders compelling cooperation from persons involved with the once-secret grand jury investigation into Sandusky's alleged sexual abuse of boys.

Judge John Cleland ruled after an unusual, closed-door session with Kane in which, according to the judge's order, she provided no evidence or information of leaks from her predecessors' staffs in the case.

Cleland wrote openly about Kane's testimony in his Thursday afternoon order, which he noted he had initially kept closed out of caution that information protected by grand jury secrecy rules might come out.

Instead, the judge wrote, Kane "testified that she is aware of no information, including emails or oral or written communications, that either prove to her, or persuade her, that Judge (Barry) Feudale and/or any attorneys for the Office of Attorney General orchestrated, facilitated, cooperated in, or arranged for the disclosure of otherwise secret grand jury information in this case."

With that, Cleland denied Sandusky's request to subpoena persons involved in the 2009-11 investigation as part of his quest to determine how The Patriot-News was able to publish a story on the investigation in March, 2011.

The defense wanted those powers as it tests a theory that leaks were strategically fed to the media in order to try to tease out other alleged witnesses who would build the case against the one-time Penn State football icon.

The door is not completely shut for Sandusky, however, as Cleland's order said defense attorney Al Lindsay is still free to pursue that angle with the current grand jury supervising judge, Norman Krumenacker.
 
Cleland did not rule on other aspects of Sandusky's appeal Thursday, including requests to:

* Compel testimony from a man who has claimed - without corroboration from prosecutors - to be the boy that former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary saw after-hours in a Penn State shower with Sandusky.

* Force private attorneys who represented the eight men who testified at trial against Sandusky to turn over copies of any contracts for representation in future civil settlements they had with the victims.

Cleland also explained in his order that he held the expedited hearing Thursday in part because of an Oct. 28 press release issued by Kane's office.

In it, Kane argued that Feudale, the judge who supervised the Sandusky grand jury investigation, had sought to leak sealed Supreme Court documents pertaining to her successful 2013 effort to have him removed from his grand jury position.

In her release - which was released the day before a previously scheduled argument on Sandusky's appeal - Kane did not directly level accusations about leaks on the Sandusky case.

But Kane also noted that Feudale had sent emails complaining about his ouster to some of the same prosecutors and reporters who were involved in the prosecution and/or reporting of Sandusky and other high profile cases.

Because that connection, to Cleland, cut to the core of the pending matters before him, he issued special orders last week compelling Kane to turn over what she had on Sandusky leaks by Wednesday.

The judge said he ordered her follow-up testimony on Thursday for clarification, and by Thursday night he felt he had it:

Kane, in Cleland's view, has "no information implicating Judge Feudale or any attorneys in the participation in any grand jury leaks in this case," the judge wrote, nor was it her intention to give that impression.

Court sticks taxpayers with Jerry Sandusky’s pension tab
November 29, 2015

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach convicted of abusing and molesting numerous boys over more than a decade, will get to keep his taxpayer-funded state pension.

A state judge ruled Friday that Sandusky is entitled to receive his nearly $5,000 per-month pension, concluding the State Employee Retirement System erred when it forfeited his pension following his 2012 conviction. It’s unclear whether SERS will appeal the ruling.

In the unanimous opinion, Judge Dan Pelligrini wrote Sandusky could not be stripped of his pension because his crimes weren’t committed while he was a state employee. After retiring from Penn State in 1999, Sandusky continued to work on the campus and ran the Second Mile, a youth charity he used to identify and target vulnerable boys.

“Mr. Sandusky’s performance of services that benefited PSU does not render him a PSU employee,” Pelligrini concluded.

The court order reinstates Sandusky’s pension retroactively, meaning he’s able to collect all payments since his pension was forfeited in 2012, plus interest.

Jay Pagni, spokesman for SERS, told the Associated Press the SERS Board will review the court’s decision and determine what further action, including a possible appeal, will be taken.

Penn State has paid more than $92M as a result of Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal: report
November 26, 2015

 

NBC News, citing university documents published this week, reported that Penn State has spent more than $92 million in the last two years on settlements and related costs to the Sandusky scandal.

The $92.8 million - paid or set aside for 32 claims, according to an audited financial statement released by the university this week - includes $33.2 million for related costs on top of what had been previously reported.

Additional claims could be paid in the future," Penn State's financial statement said, according to NBC News. The report said the extra money went for "internal investigation, legal, communications and other related costs."
