Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky comes to Centre County Court Thursday morning, hoping his lawyers can convince the judge that he deserves a new trial. Sandusky, a former Penn State defensive coach, was convicted last June of sexually molesting 10 young boys over a period of 15 years. Some of the crimes were committed on the campus of Penn State University. Defense lawyers argued that they were not given enough time to form a defense, any defense, for Sandusky, telling the judge they were given more than 12 thousand pages of documents in the six months before their trial. Half of that amount came just before the trial began.
But prosecutors say Sandusky's lawyers defeated their own argument when Joe Amendola, who represented Sandusky during the criminal trial, admitted after reviewing the files they would have no impact on the defense strategy.
