Jerry Sandusky Trial: Identities Of The Accusers Released

Prosecutors in the ongoing sexual abuse case involving former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky claim to have "inadvertently" released the identities of the accusers as part of a 30-page document. The names of the alleged victims were included in evidence turned over to Sandusky's defense team on Monday, according to Sara Ganim of The Patriot News.

In turn, that document was posted on the Centre County court website before judge John Cleland granted a request to seal it. According to Ganim, Cleland had earlier ordered that the names of Sandusky's accusers not be publicly disclosed.

Nonetheless, there isn't much information Sandusky's legal team isn't trying to uncover about the accusers. Per the Associated Press:

In a series of discovery requests made to the attorney general's office in recent months, Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola has sought school transcripts, medical records going back to birth, Internet search histories, Facebook account details, employment-related documents and cellphone and Twitter records.

They also want to know the alleged victims' IQs, academic grades and medical histories.
