Jerry Sandusky won’t get a new trial

Though found guilty on 45 counts of child-sex abuse, former Penn State defensive coordinator and serial pedophile Jerry Sandusky has maintained his innocence, and in October of last year, sought a new trial. Sandusky claimed that his lawyers weren’t given enough time to prepare for the 50-plus original counts he faced.

Sandusky won’t get that new trial. Per the Associated Press, Judge John Cleland issued a 27-page order noting there was no new material by the defense that indicated their strategy in Sandusky’s trial could have been any different. Cleland also “rejected post-sentencing motions regarding jury instructions, hearsay testimony and other matters.”

Sandusky was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison in what essentially amounts to a life sentence for the now 69-year-old. Sandusky can appeal the decision to the mid-level Superior Court, but basically, consider this a closing on Sandusky’s fate.

    Hope they put him general population with the normal inmates. My wife is a corrections officer and from what she tells me he would not get a warm welcome from them. It would be deserving for such a vile human being.

    I’m wondering who is giving the negative comments about Sandusky the thumbs down. He’s a repeated child rapist…and you’re a loser.

    ClassyJack I agree with you those ppl giving thumbs down must find it ok for grown men to touch little boys which is the most vile of acts I’m not one to usually jump on here and leave negative comments about stuff but what he did can not be forgiven and he will burn for it

    I have to agree with ClassyJack. To those who “thumb down” the negative comments about the waste of skin formerly known as Jerry Sandusky, please go away. Thank you.

    The next time I see his name I hope it’s followed by ” died in prison” and then never have to hear his name again!

    Consider Sandusky’s lust for gay sex, I can’t help but wonder if the justice system has thrown “Br’er Rabbit” Jerry into his own proverbial “Briar Patch.”
