BELLEFONTE, Pennsylvania — A man who claims former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky abused him as a teen will have a court hearing in October in his efforts to force state prosecutors to file criminal charges.

The now-43-year-old man last month appealed the state attorney general's decision not to file a criminal complaint against Sandusky. The man met with state prosecutors in April, and was told the 1988 allegations were too old under the statute of limitations. But the man says changes to the statute of limitations in 2002 and 2006 should permit the charges now.

Sandusky's attorney says Sandusky denies molesting the man at a football camp on the Penn State campus. Sandusky's accuser was 16 then.
