CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - An attorney who represented former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at his sex abuse trial has pleaded guilty to stealing more than three-quarters of a million dollars from clients.

Pennlive.com (http://bit.ly/221oTds ) reports 42- year-old Karl Rominger of Carlisle pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Court on Thursday to charges of theft by deception and misappropriation.

Prosecutors say he took about $767,000 in client funds and spent it on casino gambling and other interests.

Sentencing is Aug. 4. Sentencing guidelines call for 9 to 16 months in prison.

Rominger voluntarily surrendered his law license and was disbarred last spring.

Sandusky was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys. He is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term.
