BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is turning
down Jerry Sandusky's request to delay the start of his trial on
child sexual abuse charges.
The high court ruled Monday that the case against the former
Penn State assistant football coach can begin with jury selection
Sandusky's lawyers sought the justice's review on Friday, after
the trial judge and a lower-level court rejected several attempts
to forestall the proceedings.
Opening statements are expected to begin June 11.
The 68-year-old Sandusky faces more than 50 criminal charges for
alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years, allegations he denies.
