  • BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Four of the young men alleged to be child sexual abuse victims of former Penn state assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky are asking the judge in his case to prevent their real names from being made public.

    Lawyers for so-called Victims 3, 5 and 7 filed motions Tuesday asking Judge John Cleland to prevent identities of alleged victims from being disclosed publicly.

    Lawyers for Victim 4 are asking for a pseudonym to be used for him during the trial. They say his psychologist is worried about what effect disclosure of his name will have on his well-being.

    The lawyers for Victims 3 and 7 say Sandusky's lawyer isn't opposed, but they haven't heard back from state prosecutors.

    The 68-year-old former defensive coordinator's trial starts next week. He denies the allegations.
