STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania — Pennsylvania prosecutors are appealing a judge's order that they review a man's claims he was molested as a 16-year-old by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The attorney general's office filed a notice of appeal Tuesday, challenging an Oct. 28 decision by a county judge that the statute of limitations hasn't expired on filing criminal charges.

The judge's order requires prosecutors to re-evaluate the case to see whether the allegations meet a minimum standard for filing charges.

An office spokesman says prosecutors are confident they've properly analyzed the time limits for filing charges.

The accuser, a 43-year-old Massachusetts man, initiated a private criminal complaint last year.

He claims Sandusky sexually assaulted him during a 1988 football camp at the university. Sandusky's lawyer has said the allegations are baseless.
