BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky‘s resentencing on a 45-count child sexual abuse conviction is being delayed another two weeks.

Skerda acted after Sandusky’s defense lawyer and prosecutors filed a joint request. They said they need a little more time to prepare for argument about Sandusky’s designation as a sexually violent predator, among other things.
