HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky's lawyer is asking a judge to delay his June 5 trial on 52 counts related to child sex abuse charges against 10 boys, saying that without the delay he may not be able to "effectively and adequately represent" the former Penn State assistant football coach.
Joe Amendola argued in a court filing Wednesday that he needs more time to investigate the case and seek more information related to the charges that were filed by state prosecutors in November and December.
Amendola says he's still waiting for material from prosecutors about the charges.
The request comes a month before Judge John Cleland is set to pick jurors in Centre County to hear the case. Cleland has said before that he was reluctant to postpone the trial.
