Judge rejects motions to dismiss in Sandusky case

The judge overseeing former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse case denied on Friday defense motions to dismiss the charges in the case.

Sandusky is charged with more than 50 counts of sexual misconduct involving young boys. His lawyers had sought to have the charges dismissed, arguing some were too vague and that there is insufficient evidence on others.

The ruling comes two days after prosecutors and defense attorneys settled on a jury of five men and seven women to hear the case against Sandusky, who has been under house arrest since he was charged with sexually abusing 10 boys, some of whom he met through the charity he created for underprivileged children.

Sandusky, 68, has denied the charges.

Many jurors have Penn State ties

    def. Thinking 'ding-dong the witch is dead' means Jerry Sandusky had zero accomplices.

    Just hope he is held responsible for what he has done so that these men he took advantage of can begin to heal and Jerry can stop smiling and posing for the media. He makes me sick.

    @Kofender...Joe Paterno reported Jerry Sandusky's bi se xual relationships with students to Penn State officials who promised him they were on top of it, and he should 'stand down' and do his job: coach an all male team with an assistant who has an eye for bungholes of men and boys. (18 and over is a man. Don't tell me Sandusky asked for I.D. before he began lusting for a younger man)

  4. Next: Mrs. Sandusky

    Unless Mrs. Sandusky has cut a deal to escape prosecution for aiding and abedding her bi se xual husband, she is next to be prosecuted.
    Of course, as a woman legally married to a suspected criminal she could plead the 5th amendment and not be compelled to testify. I'm wagering that she rolled-over on her husband the same way she rolled-over for one of his victims; Mrs. Sandusky had an affair with a man whom as a boy had been statutory rayped by Jerry. He even recorded her speaking openly of Sandusky's multiple bi se xual encounters with students both under and over 18 going back nearly 20 years. It was these recordings that got prosecuters off their asses regarding this decade plus old case.

  5. no reply

    Most, if not every single one of you "news bloggers", ever heard of Mrs. Sandusky having an extramarital affair with a man whom as a boy had been statutorily rayped by Jerry Sandusky.
    See? In order for you to form an opinion on this, it would have first had to have been reported to you on TV/Major media, who, along with reporting this would also have reported what your opinion is. You have no opinion other than the one given you by talking heads. The very idea of an original thought escapes your mind.

    • Actually

      Actually, it has been reported, and commented on. Actually I read it here a lot. Therefore, actually you'd be wrong in presuming that no one knows anything but you. Actually, there's no reason to reply on something that has been hashed over and commented on repeatedly. So, actually, what is it you're after?
