BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped one of the 52 counts against former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky, citing a timing issue.
The state attorney general's office withdrew the count Monday morning as the trial entered its second week. The encounter involved in the charge occurred in 1995 or 1996, but prosecutors say the statute didn't apply until 1997.
More counts related to the accuser dubbed Victim 7 by prosecutors are still pending.
Prosecutors also told Judge John Cleland they would call one more witness before resting their case.
Sandusky is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year span. He denies any wrongdoing.
