Harrisburg Patriot-News reporter Sarah Ganim, who broke the Sandusky story last year, said on her Twitter account that she spoke with Karl Rominger, one of the attorneys for Sandusky

Rominger said the judge in the case told him about the May trial date. He is the co-counsel for Sandusky along with Joe Amedola.

The AP then reported that the Sandusky trial will start on May 14th in Bellefonte, Pa.

Sandusky is in court on Friday as his attorneys argue several pre-trial motions about his bail restrictions.

Fox 29's Bruce Gordon was in the courtroom on Friday, where he says Judge John M. Cleland is trying settle issues related to Sandusky's bail and the jury for the trial.

Sandusky's neighbors had complained he was watching children at a neighboring school. Sandusky said he was just letting his dog outside his house.

Prosecutors also wanted a jury from outside Centre County to hear the case. Amedola and Sandusky both told the judge they wanted a jury from Centre County to hear the case.

Sandusky took the stand at one point and gave one-word answers to questions from the judge.

The judge adjourned the hearing at around 11:30 a.m. and sais his rulings would come soon.
