A closed-door meeting that included former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, his lawyer, prosecutors and the judge in his child sexual abuse ended with little fanfare late Tuesday afternoon.
No one commented after the three-hour meeting at the Centre County Courthouse annex in Bellefonte. The topic of the meeting wasn't clear. The 68-year-old Sandusky is awaiting trial next week on 52 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years. He's denied the allegations.
His lawyer has said Sandusky won't be at a pretrial hearing scheduled for later today. Judge John Cleland hasn't ruled on a defense request to have charges dismissed. Sandusky's lawyers and state prosecutors are under a gag order not to discuss details of the case.
