HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania court officials say all the judges in Penn State's home county have removed themselves from potentially presiding over the child sex-abuse case against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts announced Tuesday that out-of-county judges have been named to deal with any related court business in the Centre County case.
Sandusky faces 40 criminal counts for sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period.
Sandusky, whose preliminary hearing is scheduled for next month, has maintained his innocence.
The court system says the case will eventually be handled by McKean County Senior Judge John Cleland. Until he's able to assume jurisdiction, a different judge from Perry and Juniata counties is filling in.
