BELLEFONTE - A defense lawyer for Jerry Sandusky has asked a judge to admit the former Penn State assistant football coach's entire autobiography as evidence in his child sex-abuse trial.
Karl Rominger says he believes the prosecution will try to use snippets from the book "Touched" to mischaracterize Sandusky's actions and motivations. Rominger says jurors should see the whole book so they can put the material in context.
Rominger is also asking Judge John Cleland to admit the grand jury testimony of Penn State officials Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. He says all three are expected to invoke their right against self incrimination if the defense calls them to testify.
Both motions were filed Monday, the same day Sandusky's trial began. Sandusky has maintained his innocence.
