Sandusky Loses Bid For New Trial

10.03.13 | Bob Price

Convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky’s request for a retrial has been shot down by the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The 3-judge panel issued a 19-page opinion Wednesday that held up Sandusky’s 30-to-60-year sentence and rejected the arguments his lawyer made during an appeal hearing last month in the hope of reversing the verdict and getting his client a new trial. It was a quick decision, having come just 15 days after the defense and prosecuting attorneys gave oral arguments in front of the panel of three judges. Sandusky’s lawyer, Norris Gelman, said he plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court within 30 days.
