HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A lawyer for a man who accuses Jerry Sandusky of sexually abusing him as a child says the former Penn State coach’s attorney is trying to put the victims on trial and is raising irrelevant issues in his criminal case.
Ben Andreozzi (and-ree-AHZ’-ee) was reacting Tuesday to a judge’s order granting Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, the phone numbers and addresses of those who have accused Sandusky of abuse.
Andreozzi says that “Sandusky knows what he did to these young men” and that his client plans to testify truthfully.
Amendola says he’s just seeking information he’s legally entitled to as he prepares for trial.
Sandusky is accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. He’s confined to his home awaiting a May trial and denies the allegations.
