Jerry Sandusky granted hearing in appeal of sex abuse scandal

|

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is currently serving a 30-60 prison sentence for sexually abusing children throughout the 1970’s and 80’s. However, he will have the chance to shorten his sentence during an appeal later this year.

According to ESPN, Sandusky has been given three days of hearings in an appeal.

The hearings are scheduled to take place in August and will address “whether prosecutors improperly leaked information about the investigation and whether defense lawyers should have called Sandusky to testify.”

The appeal will also determine whether a prosecutor from the 2012 trial lied during closing arguments. He was accused of actually knowing the identity of a figure known as a Victim 2 during the case four years ago.
