BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- An attorney for a former Penn State football assistant coach accused of molesting boys has filed a request for information prosecutors have about the witnesses he could expect to see at trial.

Jerry Sandusky's defense attorney, Joe Amendola, filed a request for a bill of particulars on Wednesday. The filing is standard procedure and requires the state attorney general's office to provide details such as the names and ages of people who say they're victims and the names and addresses of witnesses.

The judge overseeing the case also canceled a pretrial conference scheduled for March 22. No new date has been set.

Sandusky is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys, some on Penn State's campus. He acknowledges he showered with boys but says he didn't molest them.
