Judge Delays Sandusky Sex-Abuse Trial By 3 Weeks

The judge overseeing the Penn State child sexual abuse case has delayed former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's trial by three weeks.

The judge agreed to postpone the trial from mid-May to June 5. His decision came in response to a group of motions filed a week ago by Sandusky.

The 68-year-old retired defensive coordinator faces 52 counts involving 10 alleged victims over 15 years. He's confined to his home to await trial, and denies the allegations.
