Lawyers representing Jerry Sandusky on Tuesday called for a ream of additional information from the prosecution in the sexual abuse case against the former Pennsylvania State football coach — including phone numbers of the 10 alleged victims — as it attempts to show that the accusers conspired to bring charges, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
"In many cases, the defendant believes the accusers may have collaborated with each other in making these false accusations," according to the 37-page motion filed by defense attorney Joseph Amendola.
Sandusky, 68, is facing 52 counts of child sex abuse involving 10 boys between 1994 and 2008. Sandusky waived a preliminary hearing, and is slated to proceed to trial.
The filing asked the judge overseeing the case, John Cleland, to order the prosecution to turn over or disclose redacted details on dozens of police reports, as well as psychiatric evaluations of the alleged victims and interview notes from the three-year long investigation, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report.
The report said that Cleland is expected to address this issue, as well Sandusky’s effort to modify his bail conditions at the same proceeding on Friday.
The coach has been under house arrest since he was released on $250,000 bail in December.
As NBC News’ Michael Isikoff reported Tuesday, the prosecutors are seeking to tighten bail conditions after receiving reports from anxious neighbors that Sandusky has been spotted sitting on the deck of his house watching schoolchildren in a nearby playground.
Sandusky had been seeking permission to have supervised visits with his grandchildren, but the prosecutors noted in a filing that the ex-wife of one of Sandusky's sons "strenuously objects to her three minor children having any contact whatsoever with the defendant."
