Sandusky Denied New Trial

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky will not get the new trial he asked for. Sandusky argued that his lawyers weren't given enough time to prepare for the proceeding that ended with a 45-count guilty verdict. Judge John Cleland issued a 27-page order in Harrisburg saying his lawyers conceded that their post trial review turned up no material that would have changed their trial strategy. He also has rejected post sentencing motions regarding jury instructions, hearsay testimony and other matters. The defense plans to appeal to mid level Superior Court within the next 30 days. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
