Cleand Rejects Sandusky Motion
to Have Charges Dismissed

Judge John Cleland will not throw out child sex abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Cleland today rejected an argument by Sandusky's lawyer that the statute of limitations may have run out for eight of the 10 alleged victims.

In his two-page order, Cleland also rejected defense motions that some of the charges against Sandusky were not specific enough and that evidence was lacking in others.

He did grant a motion to have prospective jurors questioned individually. The attorney general’s office also agreed to that. Cleland said he will make a decision on whether to sequester the jury at the time of the trial, which is scheduled to start June 5.

Sandusky is accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a period of 15 years. He has denied the accusations.
