Jerry Sandusky's ex-lawyer surrenders law license

AP - Sports

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) -- One of two defense lawyers who represented former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at his child sex abuse trial has voluntarily surrendered his license to practice law in Pennsylvania. The move comes amid an investigation into allegations of misappropriation of client funds.

The Cumberland County Bar Association said Thursday that Karl Rominger had surrendered his license. It says the effective date of that surrender will be determined by the state Supreme Court.

Rominger's law firm is based in Carlisle. It's the subject of a probe into possible misappropriation of funds from a client's divorce settlement.

The Internal Revenue Service recently filed nearly $310,000 in tax liens against Rominger.

A message left at Rominger's office hasn't been returned.

Sandusky was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys and is imprisoned but maintains his innocence.
