Trial Judge John M. Cleland this morning rejected Jerry Sandusky's last pending motions to have child sexual abuse charges against him dismissed. In a brief, seven-line order filed in Centre County court, the judge cleared the docket for Sandusky's trial to begin Monday morning.

The retired Penn State defensive coordinator maintains his innocence on all counts.
