Judge refuses to dismiss Sandusky charges; trial set to begin Monday

The judge in former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial on Friday dismissed a last-ditch defense motion to toss the case.

McKean County (Pa.) Senior Judge John Cleland issued a three-paragraph order (.pdf) denying the motion, meaning that all 52 charges remain in place heading into opening arguments, which are scheduled Monday morning.

Sandusky, 68, former defensive coordinator of Penn State’s football team under the late legendary coach Joe Paterno, is accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

A panel of seven women and five men was selected during two days of jury selection earlier this week.
