Sandusky’s Trial Bid Going to Court



Jerry Sandusky's challenge to his child molestation conviction is going before a state appeals court Tuesday.
 
The former Penn State assistant football coach is seeking to overturn a sentence that could keep him behind bars for life. He's also asking for a new trial.
Pennsylvania's Superior Court will decide whether prosecutors made an improper reference to the fact that Sandusky did not testify, whether jury instructions were mishandled and whether the defense should have been given more time before trial to digest a large volume of investigative material.
 
Oral arguments will be held in Wilkes-Barre. Sandusky isn't expected to be in the courtroom. He's serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
