Pa. Supreme Court refuses to hear Sandusky appeal

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court refuses to hear an appeal from convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky. The high court announced its ruling on a Petition for Allowance of Appeal from Order of the Superior Court, late Wednesday afternoon.

The former Penn State assistant football coach contended that his lawyers went to trial too quickly.  He also felt that state prosecutors improperly made reference to Sandusky’s decision not to testify on his own behalf during the Centre County trial.

Sandusky was sentenced last fall to 30 to 60 years in prison for his conviction on 45 counts of child molestation involving the sexual abuse of 10 juvenile boys.
