Penn State stands to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars from the defunct charity for children founded by Sandusky to settle claims that were never fleshed out in a civil lawsuit.

BELLEFONTE — Jerry Sandusky’s resentencing on a 45-count child sexual abuse conviction is on hold and it’s not clear when it will occur.

Judge John Foradora issued a short order on Monday saying the Sept. 23 proceeding won’t take place as scheduled.

Sandusky was sentenced to 30 to 60 years after his 2012 jury conviction, but an appeals court ruled in February that mandatory minimums had been improperly applied.

Sandusky defense lawyer Al Lindsay declined comment on the reason for the judge’s order.

Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted of the sexual abuse of 10 boys, including attacks on campus.
