CARLISLE, Pa. - An attorney who helped represent former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at his child sex abuse trial will be resentenced for embezzling $767,000 from his clients because a sentencing judge made a math error.
The Superior Court ruled Thursday that the error resulted in a 5½- to 18-year term for Karl Rominger, a year longer than Rominger should have received once all the terms were added together.
"We cannot uncover where the additional 12-month prison term was imposed," the court said.
As a result, the judge who sentenced Rominger in Cumberland County eight months ago must resentence him. A date for that hasn't been scheduled.
The order doesn't affect a separate 20-month federal prison sentence against Rominger for federal income tax evasion imposed in October.
