Sandusky's delay request goes to Pa. high court
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky's lawyers in his child sex-abuse trial are now asking the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for a delay.
A person familiar with the defense's court filing told The Associated Press that Sandusky's lawyers on Friday appealed a rejection of a delay by a lower court. The person requested anonymity, citing a gag order in the case.
Sandusky lawyer Karl Rominger won't comment, citing the gag order. Another lawyer, Joe Amendola, didn't immediately return telephone and email messages seeking comment.
A Superior Court panel denied the former Penn State assistant football coach's petition seeking its review of the matter.
The 68-year-old Sandusky faces 52 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years, allegations he denies. Jury selection is scheduled to begin in a central Pennsylvania courthouse on Tuesday.
