Victims, Sandusky may speak at today's sentencing hearing


Cleland, who was even-tempered during the trial, could reflect on how he came up with the sentence he did or he could admonish Sandusky.

Amendola has made it known he plans to appeal the conviction and sentence, but he has to wait until after sentencing. He was quick to say that during a news conference that followed the verdict the night of June 22.

Amendola said the defense will have 10 days after the sentencing to file post-sentence motions. Cleland will have up to four months to decide on those motions. If he denies Sandusky’s post-sentence motions, the defense would have 30 days to file an appeal in the state Superior Court, he said.

Amendola has said he and his co-counsel, Karl Rominger, did not have enough time to prepare for trial, which came eight months after Sandusky was indicted.

The recently released transcripts even show they wanted out of the case the morning that jury selection started. The judge denied the request.

Amendola has said he may have to be a witness during the appeal process, so he could not represent Sandusky through that process.

The defense has 10 days to file post-sentence motions to the trial judge and 30 days for appeals to the state’s Superior Court.
