As Mark Shade reports for Reuters, former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky has appeared in court - he has been on house arrest - after 52 charges of sex crime were leveled at him late last year.
The most recent development in the Sandusky case concerns a courtroom battle over whether the case should be dismissed, amid allegations that some of the charges aren't valid.
The grand jury is still investigating the case, according to the prosecutor, which has brought forth "voluminous" evidence.
But the presiding judge isn't ready to make any decisions, as Shade reports. "[It's] premature to decide what can and cannot be prosecuted," said the judge, citing the ongoing investigation.
And because of what the judge claimed to be his heavy caseload, he did not expect to make a ruling until next week or later, based on a motion submitted by defense attorneys asking the judge to dismiss the case.
The ongoing Sandusky legal saga - and the extensive media coverage - is indicative of what often happens to people who have been charged with sex crimes. Because of the highly-charged nature of these types of crimes, the situation only gets worse when the person is famous.
