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 Wednesday denied defense attorney Joe
Amendolas request for more time to prepare his defense.
Cleland says no trial date is perfect but that, on balance,
starting the trial on Tuesday is best for the defendant and alleged
victims.
Sandusky was charged in November and December with a total of 52
counts involving 10 boys he allegedly abused between 1994 and 2008.
