A Pennsylvania appeals court denied Jerry Sandusky’s request for a new trial but is ordering him to be resentenced for a 45-count child sexual abuse conviction.
The 75-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach was sentenced in 2012 to 30 to 60 years in state prison for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
Victims testified that he subjected them to a range of abuse, from grooming to violent sexual attacks. Sandusky has consistently maintained his innocence.
Superior Court on Tuesday said Sandusky was improperly sentenced using mandatory minimums.
His lawyer says Sandusky will keep fighting for a new trial by appealing further to the state Supreme Court.
