Lawyers for so-called Victims 3, 5 and 7 filed motions Tuesday asking Judge John Cleland to prevent identities of alleged victims from being disclosed publicly.

Lawyers for Victim 4 are asking for a pseudonym to be used for him during the trial. They say his psychologist is worried about what effect disclosure of his name will have on his well-being.

The lawyers for Victims 3 and 7 say Sandusky’s lawyer isn’t opposed, but they haven’t heard back from state prosecutors.

The 68-year-old former defensive coordinator’s trial starts next week. He denies the allegations.
