Jerry Sanduski, the former assistant football coach for Pennsylvania state college was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse of young boys over a 15-year period from 1994 to 2009. The scandal cost the college where Sanduski worked over $200 million in fines and settlements and dozens of young boys were victimized.
Sanduski was convicted as a serial rapist and child molester in a two-year grand jury investigation in 2011 which found he was molesting the very children an organization he founded was supposed to help. Sanduski's attorney's argued they did not have enough time to prepare. Pennsylvania Judge John Cleland denied Sandusky's request for a new trial in 2013 but his attorney's appealed. His attorney's brought up new reasoning for why they were not able to adequately defend Sanduski so they asked for a new trial again.
The 73-year-old man was denied a new trial again today but his attorney's have 30 days to appeal the decision. The appeal marks the last hope of the former hall of famer to appeal his innocence to a grand jury. He will continue to serve his 30 to 60-year sentence in prison in the mean time.
