STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky's arrest on more child sex-abuse charges presents him with a new challenge — how to assist his lawyer from behind bars in what was already a complicated case to defend.
William Manifesto, a longtime Pittsburgh defense attorney not involved in the case, says lawyers want their clients available to them at all times, which isn't the case when defendants are in prison.
Sandusky was jailed Wednesday after new child sex abuse charges were filed against him based on the claims of two new accusers, including one who says he screamed in vain for help while Sandusky attacked him in a basement bedroom.
The additional alleged victims, who contacted officials after Sandusky's initial arrest on Nov. 5, told the grand jury they met Sandusky through his charity.
