HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) —
The judge overseeing the Penn State child sexual abuse case has delayed former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's trial by three weeks.
The judge agreed to postpone the trial from mid-May to June 5. His decision came in response to a group of motions filed a week ago by Sandusky.
The 68-year-old retired defensive coordinator faces 52 counts involving 10 alleged victims over 15 years. He's confined to his home to await trial, and denies the allegations.
In the meantime, Sandusky's attorney is claiming that prosecutors may have actually convinced some of the alleged victims to file charges.
The attorney said he's talked to one person who spent a lot of time with Sandusky through the Second Mile charity and was interviewed by investigators eight or nine times and denied ever being abused.
That man did not press charges.
But Sandusky's attorney said he's convinced that the repeated questioning of some of the alleged victims may have influenced the investigation.
