HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania appeals court said Wednesday that former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky doesn't deserve a new trial after being convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.
A three-judge Superior Court panel ruled Wednesday, barely two weeks after hearing oral arguments by a state prosecutor and lawyers for the ex-coach.
Sandusky said his lawyers didn't have enough time to prepare for trial, a prosecutor made improper references to Sandusky not testifying on his own behalf and the judge mishandled jury instructions.
The attorney general's office said the convictions should stand.
The 69-year-old Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence.
His lawyer said he plans to seek Supreme Court review.
