Sandusky denied

 

Jerry Sandusky isn’t getting the new trial he asked for after arguing that his lawyers weren’t given enough time to prepare for the proceeding that ended with a 45-count guilty verdict. Judge John Cleland on Wednesday issued a 27-page order that said Sandusky’s lawyers conceded that their post-trial review turned up no material that would have changed their trial strategy. The former Penn State assistant football coach has maintained his innocence and vowed to appeal. Sandusky lawyer Norris Gelman says the decision means the defense will appeal to mid-level Superior Court within the next 30 days. – AP
