BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) – The judge handling Jerry Sandusky’s appeal is ordering Pennsylvania’s attorney general to provide him and the former Penn State assistant football coach’s lawyers any information she might have about possible leaks in the case by state prosecutors and a grand jury judge.
Judge John Cleland on Thursday gave Attorney General Kathleen Kane one week to give them, under seal, information about “who, what, when and how this information was released.”
The order comes a day after Kane released emails in which the grand jury judge told Philadelphia Inquirer reporters he was considering giving them a sealed document about Kane’s effort to remove him from supervising the jury.
Cleland says Kane must appear before him in a closed-door hearing Nov. 5 if he determines she hasn’t complied with the order.
Sandusky is trying to overturn a 45-count conviction for child sexual abuse.
