The legal battles over the Jerry Sandusky scandal continued to unfold on Wednesday as the former Penn State assistant coach lost his bid for a new trial and the state Senate passed a bill designed to keep in Pennsylvania $60 million in NCAA fines stemming from the scandal.

Judge John M. Cleland, who presided over Sandusky's trial, issued an order rejecting Sandusky's arguments that his lawyers were not given adequate time to prepare for the trial, which ended in his conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Sandusky, 68, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence for sexually abusing 10 boys on or near the Penn State campus. He continues to maintain his innocence even as his former employer struggles with sweeping sanctions the NCAA imposed on its football program as a result of its the handling of Sandusky.

On Wednesday, the state Senate passed a bill designed to require that $60 million in fines the NCAA imposed on the university be kept in Pennsylvania and distributed to child abuse prevention efforts in the state rather than distributed across the nation. The House must now consider it.
