Former assistant Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was granted an evidentiary hearing as a part of his post-sentencing process to be held on Jan. 10, according to court documents.
Judge John Cleland, the judge who presided over the criminal trial and proceedings, granted the hearing.
Sandusky's attorneys motioned for the evidentiary hearing due to issues raised during Sandusky's post-sentence motions. The attorneys claim that the court did not allow the defendant due process throughout the case. The motion, which was issued through Sandusky's attorneys Joseph Amendola and Norris Gelman, says the defendant was unable to "integrate the vast amount of material turned over by the prosecution to the defense when trial was imminent."
Amendola has repeatedly said that he believes his client was not given enough time to sort through the materials in order to appropriately prepare for trial.
The hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 13 in Courtroom 1 at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.
Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys and was sentenced in October to serve 30 to 60 years in prison.
