Judge refuses to toss Sandusky sex abuse charges

(CBS/AP) BELLEFONTE, Pa. - On the eve of the Jerry Sandusky's child sexual abuse trial the Pennsylvania judge overseeing the trial has denied a request to have the charges dismissed.

Judge John Cleland's three-paragraph order issued on Friday means all 52 charges remain in effect, with opening statements to start Monday.

Sandusky's attorney wanted all charges thrown out or at least a hearing to see if some charges were not supported by sufficient facts.
