Sandusky says he'll continue to seek new trial
February 21, 2013
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky's attorney has filed notice that he'll take his quest for a new trial to a higher level court.
Last month, the trial judge rejected arguments that defense attorneys didn't have enough time to prepare for the three-week trial at which the former Penn State assistant football coach was convicted on 45 child sex abuse charges.
In documents filed Thursday in Centre County Common Pleas Court, defense attorney Joseph Amendola does not explain the issues he plans to raise in his Superior Court appeal.
The trial judge, John Cleland, also rejected defense arguments about jury instructions, hearsay testimony and a comment by the prosecution during closing arguments.
