Judge denied Sandusky lawyers’ request to resign
BELLEFONTE, Pa. – Jerry Sandusky’s lawyers said Saturday they asked to resign from his child sex abuse case on the eve of trial but the judge turned them down.
Karl Rominger and Joe Amendola said that as jury selection began they made a sealed motion saying they had not been given enough time to adequately prepare, but Judge John Cleland ruled against them after discussion in his chambers.
“We told the trial court, the Superior Court and the Supreme Court we were not prepared to proceed to trial in June due to numerous issues, and we asked to withdraw from the case for those reasons,” Amendola said.
