The trial of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on child sex-abuse charges has been moved from May 14 to June 5.
The delay, ordered by Judge John M. Cleland, is the result of scheduling issues in the Bellefonte, Pa., court and not in response to a request from Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, last week.
Sandusky maintains he is innocent of the more than 52 charges of child sex-abuse of 10 boys. Sandusky, 68, is on home confinement while he awaits trial.
Jury selection was scheduled to begin May 14 and Cleland wrote that the postponement was necessary to “accommodate various logistical contingencies that have arisen.”
