Sandusky Appeal Denied
Sandusky was convicted and sentenced last year to 30 to 60 years in state prison. His current lawyer argued that his trial lawyers didn’t have enough time to prepare, that a prosecutor made improper references to Sandusky not testifying in his own defense, and that Judge John Cleland mishandled jury instructions.
Today’s decision by a three-judge Superior Court panel came just two weeks after they heard lawyers’ arguments.
Sandusky’s lawyer says he plans to ask the state Supreme Court to review the case.
