Judge Won't Delay Jerry Sandusky's Sex-Abuse Trial
A Centre County judge on Wednesday denied a request from former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky to delay the June 5th start of his child sex-abuse trial.
Judge John Cleland, saying no trial date is perfect but that "some dates are better than others,” refused to give defense attorney Joe Amendola more time to prepare his defense.
Cleland said starting jury selection next Tuesday would protect Sandusky's right to a fair trial, the alleged victims' rights to their day in court, the state's obligation to prosecute promptly and the public's expectation of a swift proceeding.
More than 450 jurors will be summoned – and jury selection is expected to last at least a week. Sandusky was charged in November and December with a total of 52 counts involving 10 boys he allegedly abused between 1994 and 2008.
