BELLEFONTE, Pa., May 3 (UPI) -- The attorney for former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky filed another motion Thursday asking the judge to compel prosecutors to turn over requested information.

Joe Amendola, defense attorney for Sandusky, who has been charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years, filed the motion in Centre County, Pa., Court for the second time, seeking documents and other information on the alleged victims in the case, which he says he has not received, the (State College) Centre Daily Times reported Thursday.

The motion reads in part, "The commonwealth has failed to provide the defendant with certain other discovery materials."

Amendola, accused by prosecutors of violating Judge John Cleland's order to keep the names of Sandusky's eight known accusers confidential, also filed court papers Thursday claiming he has "taken every reasonable step possible to maintain the anonymity" of the alleged victims, the Harrisburg Patriot-News said Thursday.

Sandusky has maintained his innocence of the charges. He is scheduled to stand trial in June.
