HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The judge in Jerry Sandusky's 52-count child sex-abuse case is rejecting a defense attorney's request for a two-month delay in the expected mid-May start of trial.
Judge John Cleland issued an eight-page order Wednesday that said pushing back the trial will only be done as a last resort, and will require concrete reasons to justify it.
Cleland is giving Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, three extra weeks to file a catch-all pretrial motion that had been due on Thursday.
The 68-year-old Sandusky denies allegations he engaged in sexual misconduct involving 10 victims over 15 years. He's confined to his home while awaiting trial.
Sandusky is the former longtime defensive coordinator at Penn State, and he founded The Second Mile, a charity for children where prosecutors say he found victims.
