Jury selection in the child sexual abuse trial of Jerry Sandusky could begin next week, after the former Penn State defensive coordinator's lawyer lost another bid to delay the proceedings.
A hearing on Wednesday focused on the evidence regarding "Victim 8," a young man who was reportedly seen by a janitor being molested by Sandusky more than 10 years ago. Because the janitor, Jim Calhoun, has dementia and can't testify, prosecutors want to call co-workers who would recount what Calhoun told them.
Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola has argued there isn't sufficient evidence to take the Victim 8 charges to trial, and asked Wednesday for a hearing for to either show he's wrong or have Judge John Cleland dismiss those counts. The same applies to charges involving two alleged victims.
Sandusky, 68, faces 52 counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period, charges he has repeatedly denied.
