Judge chosen to resentence Sandusky in child sex abuse case

Washington Times Sports 1 month ago

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A new judge is in place to handle the child sexual abuse resentencing hearing for former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday issued an order appointing Judge Maureen Skerda to take over the case.

The previous jurist, Judge John Foradora of Jefferson County, recused himself last month.

A prosecutor and Sandusky’s defense lawyer agreed in a court document that Foradora needed to step aside because of what they called an action in August by the attorney general’s office that was “separate, distinct and wholly unrelated” to the Sandusky case.

The 75-year-old Sandusky’s serving a 45-count conviction, but an appeals court ruled in February that mandatory minimums had been improperly applied.


Skerda is a judge in Warren and Forest counties.
