The legal team for convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky argued Tuesday that he didn’t receive a fair trial because of an ‘adverse comment’ by the lead prosecutor in his closing statement, among other things.
Attorneys for convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky are asking a Pennsylvania court for a retrial, saying their client did not receive a fair trial because of alleged errors made in the courtroom and a burdensome workload they say did not allow them an adequate amount of time to prepare.
The hearing on the matter took place Tuesday afternoon before a three-judge panel at the Luzerne County Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
In October 2012, Mr. Sandusky was sentenced to serve 30 to 60 years in prison based on 45 counts of molesting 10 boys while he was an assistant football coach at Penn State. He continues to say he is innocent.
