HARRISBURG, Pa. (KNNP) – Jerry Sandusky is once in the spotlight again, involving the same sexual abuse case.
According to official reports, Sandusky attempted to have a new trial issued with his lawyer’s help, but the Superior Court of Pennsylvania denied his claim. His next alternative, to ask to be resentenced.
The Superior Court of Pennsylvania approved Sandusky’s motion to have a new resentencing date after he was already sentenced to 30 to 60-years in the sexual abuse case where he molested 10 young boys.
Sandusky stated that he feels it is unfair since the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has mandatory minimums sentencing. The state appeals court has ruled mandatory minimums had been improperly applied in this case.
The new resentencing date has been scheduled for September 23rd at the Centre County Courthouse.
Jerry Sandusky, 75, was the former Penn State Assistant Coach. He was convicted on June 22, 2012. Sandusky was born in Washington, PA and was the Assistant Coach at Penn State under the control fo Joe Paterno from 1969 to 1999.
