American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. — better known as ABC — has requested access to photographic evidence used in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case, according to court documents filed Wednesday afternoon at the Centre County Courthouse.
The evidence requested includes several photographs which the person referred to as “Victim 1” in the grand jury presentment identified and discussed during his trial testimony, according to court documents.
The person referred to as “Victim 1” will be interviewed on ABC in a news report set to air Friday, according to court documents. The evidence requested will be used in the report.
The documents filed detail ABC’s reasoning behind the request, including the “constitutional right to attend court proceedings and inspect court records in criminal cases.”
ABC also cited that because the information was filed in court, it is now public record, according to court documents.
Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of sex abuse in late June and was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison in October.
