Sandusky trial to move forward
A McKean County judge on Thursday denied former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's attempts to dismiss the case against him, setting the stage for his trial in two months on a host of child sex abuse charges. Superior Court Judge John Cleland ruled against several of Sandusky's motions to dismiss. The judge said the arguments were inconsistent with the current state of Pennsylvania law. Furthermore, the judge denied a "motion for continuance" that could have pushed back the scheduled June 5 start date of Sandusky's trial.
