BELLEFONTE, Pa. – The latest on an appeals hearing for former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky (all times local):
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has arrived at a courthouse, where he's expected to testify at an appeals hearing that he was wrongly convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys.
Sandusky had no comment Friday as he was taken into the Centre County Courthouse near State College.
The 72-year-old is arguing he wasn't properly represented by his legal team during a 2012 trial that ended with a 45-count conviction. He's serving a 30- to 60-year sentence.
Among the issues are a statement made during the prosecutor's closing argument and the decision to have Sandusky give a television interview after his arrest.
He is seeking dismissal of the charges or a new trial.
The hearing is scheduled for three days.
Jerry Sandusky plans to take the stand and try to prove his claim he was wrongly convicted four years ago of sexually abusing 10 boys.
The former Penn State assistant football coach is expected to testify in a Pennsylvania courthouse on Friday during a Post-Conviction Relief Act hearing that aims to overturn his 45-count conviction.
The 72-year-old Sandusky didn't testify at his trial in 2012. His lawyer says he expects Sandusky's testimony to be lengthy.
The presiding judge said in June the hearing will delve into a prosecutor's closing statement, the decision to let Sandusky give a TV interview after his arrest and other issues.
The hearing is expected to continue on Aug. 22 and Aug. 23.
Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence.
