(Reuters) - A Pennsylvania court on Thursday ordered the start of the child sex abuse trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky moved back three weeks to June, citing logistical issues.
In an online filing, the Centre County Court of Common Pleas ordered the trial's start date moved back to June 5 from May 15.
Sandusky, 68, a former Penn State defensive coordinator, faces 52 counts of child molestation over accusations he abused 10 boys over a 15-year period. He has denied the charges and is under house arrest.
The explosive scandal focused national attention on child sex abuse and led to the firing of Penn State's legendary coach Joe Paterno and university President Graham Spanier. Paterno died in January.
