BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - A judge has denied a request from former
Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to delay the June 5 start
of his child sex-abuse trial.
Judge John Cleland on Monday denied defense attorney Joe
Amendola's request for more time to prepare his defense.
Sandusky was charged in November and December with a total of 52
counts involving 10 boys he allegedly abused between 1994 and 2008.
He has denied the charges.
Amendola has said he was concerned he would be "unable to
effectively and adequately" represent Sandusky without the delay.
Cleland also issued a second order that requires Sandusky's
lawyers to provide prosecutors expert reports by May 30 if they
plan to use them as part of their case.
