Pennsylvania Superior Court denied Jerry Sandusky’s appeal today. Sandusky was convicted last October on 45 counts of sexual abuse of young boys. He is currently serving a 30-60 year prison. His appeal argued that the judge did not properly instruct the jury. Pennsylvania Superior Court concluded otherwise, and Sandusky’s appeal is denied.

A Superior Court panel of three judges heard oral arguments in the case on September 17 during a special session at the Luzerne County Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre.
