Jerry Sandusky's Defense Asks To Delay Trial

Jerry Sandusky’s attorney has asked for a delay in his sex-abuse trial, arguing that the defense team needs more time to prepare, according to the New York Daily News.

Sandusky’s lead attorney, Joe Amendola, submitted a 13-page motion today that argued he would be “unable to effectively and adequately” represent his client. Amendola says that he is still waiting for full disclosure of prosecution material, and that without it he will not have time to construct his defense.

The former Penn State defensive coordinator is slotted to stand trial June 5. He is charged with 52 criminal counts of sexually assaulting 10 separate boys over a 15 year span. The 68-year-old is currently under house arrest while awaiting trial.

When uncovered last fall, the child sex-abuse scandal rocked Penn State University, forcing the firing of legendary head coach Joe Paterno and several school administrators.

Sandusky maintains that he is innocent.
