No New Trial for Jerry Sandusky



A state appeals court says Jerry Sandusky doesn't deserve a new trial after being convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.  
 
A three-judge Superior Court panel has ruled, barely two weeks after hearing oral arguments by a state prosecutor and lawyers for the former Penn State assistant football coach and founder of the Second Mile charity.
 
Sandusky says his lawyers didn't have enough time to prepare for trial, a prosecutor made improper references to Sandusky not testifying on his own behalf and the judge mishandled jury instructions. The attorney general's office says the convictions should stand.
 
The 69-year-old Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence. His lawyer says he plans to seek Supreme Court review.
