A judge has refused to throw out child sex abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Judge John Cleland rejected an argument by Sandusky's lawyer that the statute of limitations may have run out for eight of the 10 alleged victims.
Cleland also rejected defense motions that some of the charges against Sandusky were not specific enough and that evidence was lacking in others. But the judge said Thursday that Sandusky can make those arguments again before a June trial.
Sandusky is charged with more than 50 criminal counts that allege sexual abuse of 10 boys over 15 years. He has denied the accusations.
