Judge John Cleland, the judge in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial, has thrown out several charges!
Three to be exact.
That still leaves Sandusky facing 48 counts!
Another count was tossed because it was basically the same as another charge.
So now the jury has to only deliberate on 48 charges instead of the original 52.
Those are still some pretty insurmountable odds.
This case has been moving incredibly fast. Just nine days in and it's already time for closing statements.
Justice will soon be served.
