HARRISBURG, Pa. – A defense lawyer says former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky regrets not testifying at his child sex abuse trial and likely will be sentenced in October.
Attorney Joe Amendola said Wednesday he hasn't received a presentence report for Sandusky and continues to caution him about plans to make a statement to the judge during the sentencing hearing.
Amendola says he's begun work on post-trial motions that can't be filed until sentencing and isn't sure he'll still be representing Sandusky in the appeals process expected to play out after that.
Sandusky was convicted in late June of abusing 10 boys, some on campus. He maintains his innocence and remains in an isolated jail unit.
Amendola says Sandusky's visitors include family friends, former players and former participants in his charity.
