BELLEFONTE, Pa – The attorney for accused child molester Jerry Sandusky filed a motion Monday asking to have his client's trial delayed until July.
Joseph Amendola wants the May trial postponed as he works to analyze the "great volume" of material related to the case and attempts to line up his defense witnesses, The Patriot-News reported.
Amendola wrote in his motion that several of the defense's witnesses were unavailable to testify in May. He also wrote that prosecutors did not object to the postponement, according to the report.
Sandusky 68, is charged with sexually assaulting 10 boys over a 15-year period. The former Penn State assistant football coach pleaded not guilty to the charges in December.
