PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A lawyer says no plea talks are under way on the eve of Tuesday's preliminary hearing in the Penn State Child Sex-Abuse Case.

Jerry Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, tells the Associated Press that the former Defensive Coordinator for Penn State's Football Team isn't negotiating a plea. Sandusky is charged with
more than 50 counts of child sex-abuse involving 10 boys he met through his children's charity.

Amendola says,” Sandusky is eager to hear from the accusers at Tuesday's preliminary hearing in Bellefonte, near State College.”

The 67-year-old Sandusky was once the Heir Apparent to Coach longtime Football Coach Joe Paterno. The scandal has cost Paterno his job.

Two other school officials charged with perjury and failure to report abuse face a preliminary hearing Friday in Harrisburg.
