The American Broadcasting Companies Inc.-- better known as ABC -- had their request granted today to receive photographic evidence used in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial in preparation for an interview with the person referred as “Victim 1” Friday.
The order was signed by senior judge John Cleland, stating that both the Attorney General’s office and Sandusky’s defense team must file an answer to ABC’s motion within 20 days, addressing any issues they have with maintaining the integrity of any materials requested, according to the order.
The attorneys must state in their answer “whether or not dissemination of any exhibit might affect any future proceedings in this case, or any investigation,” according to the order.
ABC is scheduled to interview the person referred to as “Victim 1” Friday, and the boy is also scheduled to release a book, “Silent No More: Victim #1’s Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky,” on Oct. 23, telling the story of how Sandusky abused him, as previously reported.
Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing children, and was sentenced earlier this month to serve 30 to 60 years in prison.
