HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania judge is ordering state prosecutors to turn over documents they may have about deals between Jerry Sandusky’s victims and their civil lawyers.
Judge John Cleland on Thursday gave the attorney general’s office a week to give him, under seal, any book contracts, contingency fee agreements or similar materials involving any of the eight victims who testified against the former Penn State assistant football coach.
The judge is rejecting, however, Sandusky’s other requests for information and the power to subpoena people as he pursues an appeal of his 45-count conviction for child sexual abuse.
Sandusky attorney Al Lindsay says he’s gratified by the judge’s decision and will wait to see what it turns up.
A spokesman for the attorney general’s office says it’ll review the order and respond accordingly.
