I’ve been concerned about this since the beginning. There were very broad representations made by the Commonwealth on the bill of particulars. Since then, the Commonwealth has submitted an amended bill of particulars, and amended their information, which I believe now meets the standards of due process.

Judge John Cleland • Suggesting that initially, he didn’t feel that the prosecution in the Jerry Sandusky sexual-abused trial had a strong enough case against the former Penn State coach — suggesting that the charges, at least initially, were too vague. That’s actually something that Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, has said to the judge multiple times, but Cleland has dismissed. So the fact that he’s admitting this, after a bit of debate over whether some of the 52 counts against Sandusky should be dropped, is a bit of a surprise. The prosecution in the trial is expected to rest today, after one last witness.
