Jerry Sandusky lawyers file notice of another appeal

By: WJAC Web Staff and The Associated Press

HARRISBURG -- Jerry Sandusky has asked Pennsylvania's highest court to take up his case on appeal, saying a judge should have instructed jurors regarding the length of time it took victims to come forward.

The petition for allowance of appeal released Friday called it a notorious matter that tests whether fair trials can be held "even in the worst of cases."

The new filing was issued Wednesday and repeats other arguments that were recently rejected in early October by the mid-level Superior Court, including a claim that Sandusky's lawyers lacked sufficient time to prepare and that a prosecutor improperly made reference to Sandusky's decision not to testify.

The former Penn State assistant football coach was convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse in July 2012. He is serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence in Green County.
