Judges Order Says Sandusky Could Testify In Appeal Hearing

08.04.16 | Bob Price

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky could take the stand during his appeal hearing later this month.

A new court order issued Tuesday by Judge John Cleland said Sandusky may testify, as long as prosecutors approve it and are given time to prepare.

Sandusky is seeking a new trial after being convicted in 2012 on multiple child sex abuse charges.

He did not testify during that trial.

Cleland has set hearing dates for Aug. 12, 22 and 23 at the Centre County Courthouse.

Sandusky, 72, is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence for 45 counts of child sexual abuse covering 10 victims.
