Cleland: ABC Can Have Pictures

ABC TV has gotten clearance for access to pictures used as exhibits during the Jerry Sandusky trial.

Judge John Cleland issued his order late this afternoon granting ABC permission to get copies of 15 pictures related to Victim 1, Aaron Fisher.

ABC asked for the pictures last month as the network was producing a report on Fisher’s book, “Silent No More,” about his experiences with Sandusky.

Cleland's order noted that prosecutors and Sandusky's lawyer were not opposed to the release, and that Fisher and his mother supported it. ABC must pay $10 per exhibit.

Sandusky, the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence for abusing Fisher and nine other boys over a period of 15 years. He maintains his innocence and is asking for his conviction to be overturned, or for a new trial. Arguments on those motions are scheduled for January 10.
