Prosecutors filed a motion Tuesday to have the court require Jerry Sandusky’s defense team turn over materials related to expert testimony to be given at trial.
According to the motion, prosecutors want the court to order Sandusky’s defense team to let the prosecution know if they plan to use expert testimony during the trial, for which jury selection is scheduled to begin June 5.
If Sandusky’s defense team is planning to use expert testimony, prosecutors also want to be able to inspect and copy any evaluations made by experts in connection with the case, according to the motion. Such evaluations could include scientific or forensic analysis of evidence, according to the motion.
If there were no pretrial examinations made by anyone offering expert testimony, prosecutors want to know exactly what the expert is expected to testify on, where they received the information they are to testify on and a summary of the expert’s opinions, according to the motion.
Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, is charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse involving 10 boys he met through the charity he founded for underprivileged children, The Second Mile. Court documents have also referenced "Accusers 11-17 as well as 18 through an unknown number," though charges have not been filed in connection with additional individuals who said Sandusky abused them.
