Sandusky Appeal Denied

Jerry Sandusky’s appeal for a new hearing on grounds that he did not have enough time to adequately prepare for last year’s trial has been denied.

Judge John Cleland’s 27-page opinion states that while the volume of material presented in the discovery phase may have been “vast,” as the defense has called it, but a post-trial review determined there was nothing that would have changed the defense strategy or advanced Sandusky’s defense.
Sandusky was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys and was sentenced to no less than 30 years and no more than 60 years in prison.

Sandusky’s attorneys may file an appeal to mid-level Superior Court.
