Pa. AG blames defense for Penn State case delays

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s attorney general is blaming defense motions for delays in the criminal case against former Penn State administrators accused of covering up child sexual abuse complaints about Jerry Sandusky.

A spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Tuesday that since charges were filed in November, the delays are “exclusively” attributable to defense filings.

Kane’s office is responding to an order by the judge supervising the grand jury that investigated former Penn State officials Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley.

Judge Barry Feudale says the case needs to move forward.

Six months after charges were filed, there hasn’t been a preliminary hearing, which is unusual.

Last month, Feudale declined to throw out the case, a decision that’s been appealed to the state Supreme Court.
