Almost three weeks after Aaron Fisher — formerly known as “Victim 1” — revealed himself on national television, the prosecution team for Jerry Sandusky responded to ABC’s motion to obtain evidence from the trial, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
Presiding Judge John Cleland requested the prosecution detail what motions they are accepting, as well as any concerns for the safekeeping and confidentiality of evidence and exhibits the broadcast network was seeking, according to the documents.
While the prosecution admitted most of ABC’s requests, it also explained that some motions could be “neither admitted nor denied” by the team of investigators, as a response would constitute legal argument, according to the documents.
Ultimately, the prosecution team deemed that the release of exhibits — such as photos, letters and documents — would not be detrimental to any future proceedings, according to the documents.
They also requested that an investigative agent from the Office of the Attorney General be present when ABC receives access to the evidence, according to the documents.
