Sandusky Lawyer Requests Extension

Jerry Sandusky's lawyers are asking for a couple more weeks to file briefs in support of his effort to have his convictions on child sex abuse charges overturned.

Defense attorney Joe Amendola today asked Judge John Cleland for the extension, saying lead appeals lawyer Norris Gelman recently had a heart attack and open-heart surgery, and could not start work on the case until midi-October.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence, which he says is excessive.

Sandusky also wants a new trial if the convictions are not overturned, saying hearsay evidence was improperly allowed and there wasn’t enough other evidence for convictions.
