BELLEFONTE, Pa. - One of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's attorneys is challenging a trial judge's order designed to figure out if lawyers have been leaking information about his child sex abuse case.

Sandusky was convicted last month of abusing boys, some on Penn State's campus.

Defense attorney Karl Rominger on Thursday appealed Judge John Cleland's June 26 order that told Sandusky's lawyers to give him a sworn statement listing all material they obtained from prosecutors and then gave to anyone else.

The judge didn't say what prompted it. But the order was issued the day NBC reported it had obtained an audiotape of Sandusky's son saying he was molested by his adoptive father.

Rominger is arguing the judge's order would violate the protections afforded to attorneys' work products.

Sandusky insists he's innocent.
