Former Sandusky lawyer surrenders law license

Posted: Updated:

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

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

Rominger, whose law firm is based in Carlisle, is the subject of a probe into alleged misappropriation of funds from a client's divorce settlement. In addition, the Internal Revenue Service recently filed nearly $310,000 in tax liens against Rominger.

Sandusky was convicted in 2012 of 45 counts of child sexual abuse and is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence.
