A hearing to address additional post-sentence motions filed by Jerry Sandusky’s defense team will be held at 10 a.m. on Dec. 10 at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, according to court documents filed today.
Senior judge John Cleland wrote in the order today that Sandusky’s defense team will be given until Nov. 9 to file any additional post-sentence motions, according to the order. Sandusky’s defense team will then have until Nov. 16 to file briefs in support of any post-sentence motions filed, according to the order.
The prosecution will then have until Dec. 5 to reply to the motions filed by the defense, according to the order.
Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys he met through The Second Mile, the charity he started in 1977. Sandusky was sentenced earlier this month to 30 to 60 years in prison.
Sandusky’s defense team filed last week to have a new trial on the grounds that the evidence produced against Sandusky at trial was not enough to sustain a verdict, and that verdict was against the “weight of the evidence,” as previously reported.
