Sandusky Appeal Dismissed

Convicted Child Molester Jerry Sandusky has lost another bid to get a new trial with a State Court ruling this week that dismissed his latest Appeal. Jerry Sandusky claimed there’s new evidence in his case that warrants a new trial. The former Penn State Football Defensive Coordinator was convicted in 2012 in Centre County Court, on more than 40 counts of Child Sexual Assault.

Without considering the validity of the new evidence itself, a State Superior Court Judge ruled Sandusky waited too long, or as she put it “Dithered” for a year and a half before presenting the Evidentiary Argument to the Court. The Judge dismissed it and denied overturning his conviction and ordering a new trial.

However, the Judge did raise questions about the amount of restitution Sandusky was ordered to pay. Its just over $95,000. But the Judge says Prosecutors haven’t provided documentation to support hat figure and she terms it an error. That issue is being sent back to County Court for further consideration.
