Jerry Sandusky’s lawyers are arguing that he deserves a new trial because they didn’t have enough time to prepare for the first one.
His attorneys are saying that they were inundated with almost 12,000 pages of documents and that hearsay evidence was improperly allowed at the trial.
The prosecution said it didn’t matter because none of those docs and records were relevant to the trial.
They even got the defense lawyer to admit that he wouldn’t have used any of that stuff anyway.
We feel like Sandusky’s lawyers are getting tired of fighting for him.
They even at one point, unsuccessfully, tried to get taken off the case!
If your lawyers aren’t willing to fight for you, that’s not a good sign.
Sandusky said if he doesn’t get a new trial, he’s going to ask that the charges be thrown out completely so he can appeal to a Superior Court.
The judge didn’t immediately make a decision.
Sandusky should just admit to his awful crimes and just serve his time.
