Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky will be in a Pennsylvania courtroom Thursday as his lawyers argue that child sex abuse charges against him be dismissed.
Sandusky, 68, a longtime defensive coordinator for the Nittany Lions, faces more 52 counts involving sexual acts with 10 boys, dating back to 1994. Prosecutors allege he met some of the victims through a charity he created for underprivileged children.
Sandusky has pleaded not guilty, and remains under house arrest until his trial begins June 5.
Ahead of Thursday's hearing, Sandusky's lawyers filed a 95-page motion on March 22 that addresses several issues:
- The defense argues the allegations against Sandusky are so vague and non-specific that he cannot prepare and present a defense, which violates his right to due process.
- They say that in regard to some of the victims, prosecutors cannot establish sufficient proof; in some, the statute of limitations has run out.
- The defense also claims prosecutors have not turned over all the evidence. Once it is, the defense says it can lead to a revised motion to dismiss.
- They also say they need more time to prepare for the trial.FULL STORY

Um....no...I prefer banasyÂ©, thanks.
And i prefer who i am too, a GROWN UP, sheesh! Its time to stop acting like a child.
Mary does have a valid point. If an assistant coach were a drug dealer and a few of the players found out about it, they would be less likely to turn him in compared to someone he didn't coach. Sandusky is a legend @Penn State.. If he were a pee-wee coach, the kids dads would have got to him long ago.
