HARRISBURG - New documents filed by the attorneys for former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky suggest there are at least 17 accusers in the child sexual abuse case, a much higher number than described in criminal charges.
The requests, dated April 16 and April 23, were attached to a motion filed Thursday in which Sandusky defense attorney Joe Amendola asked the supervising judge to mandate more disclosure of investigative materials.
The criminal charges against the former Penn State assistant football coach only pertain to boys named as Victims 1 through 10 in court records.
The April 16 discovery request asked for information on "uncharged conduct evidence," while the one filed a week later pertained to employment records.
The court filing did not name the people, explain what might make them accusers or indicate what role, if any, they play in the criminal case in which Sandusky has denied all allegations.
