Sandusky to Appeal Conviction

    BELLEFONTE, PA - OCTOBER 09: Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky leaves the Centre County Courthouse after being sentenced in his child sex abuse case on October 9, 2012 in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. The 68-year-old Sandusky was sentenced to at least 30 years and not more that 60 years in prison for his conviction in June on 45 counts of child sexual abuse, including while he was the defensive coordinator for the Penn State college football team.

    Looks like Jerry Sandusky will not disappear quietly into prison. The disgraced former Penn State football coach is due back in court Thursday to appeal his conviction on 45 charges of sexual abuse of young boys.

Sandusky claims that his lawyers did not have enough time to prepare for the trial—and that they were overwhelmed by a deluge of materials from the prosecution. The attorney general’s office argued in a brief last week that Sandusky and his attorneys were made aware as early as 2008 that he had been accused of sexual assault.
