The former Penn State assistant football coach filed a motion Monday that says he needs more time to contact and interview witnesses, subpoena records and hire experts.

The 68-year-old Sandusky faces 52 criminal charges he sexually abused 10 boys over a 15-year period, allegations he denies.

Two weeks ago, Judge John Cleland tentatively scheduled jury selection in the trial to start May 14 in Centre County. Sandusky is also asking for more time to file a catch-all pretrial motion that’s due Thursday.
