Report: Jerry Sandusky Appeal Hearing Scheduled For October 14

Former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky will receive another appeal hearing in Pennsylvania’s superior court on Wednesday, October 14, according to WJAC.

According to WJAC, Sandusky’s hearing will be conducted virtually through a video conference at 10:30 a.m.

His legal team claims it has new evidence of illegal collusion in the attorney general’s office investigation and grand jury that led to Sandusky being charged in 2011.

Back in February, former Penn State lawyer Frank Fina, who served as a prosecutor in Sandusky’s original trial, had his law license suspended for one year and one day by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The court determined his actions of obtaining grand jury testimony of three Penn State officials were improper.

In January, a state court denied Sandusky’s request to reduce his 30-to-60-year sentence. He was resentenced to that term, the same as his original verdict, back in November 2019 by Judge Maureen Skerda.

Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse in 2012. He is currently serving his term in state prison at the State Correctional Institution at Laurel Highlands.
