PA Supreme Court Rejects Sandusky Appeal

Unclear if he’ll pursue other avenues of appeal.

Is this the last legal word we’ll hear from Jerry Sandusky? We’re guessing not. “Jerry Sandusky won’t get to argue before the state’s highest court that his conviction for sexually abusing children should be reversed. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Wednesday not to consider an appeal from the founder of The Second Mile and a former Penn State assistant football coach. The justices didn’t provide a reason in the short, one-sentence order. Sandusky was convicted in 2012 for molesting 10 young boys, and is serving a 30-year minimum sentence in solitary confinement at a state prison in Greene County.” (Centre Daily Times)
