Court Denies Jerry Sandusky’s Request For A New Trial
Somewhere in the sicko scumbag mind of disgraced Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, he believes he deserves another chance to prove that he doesn’t deserve to rot in a jail cell for being a peen pandering perv.
Luckily, the courts feel otherwise.

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky should not get a new trial after being convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys, a Pennsylvania appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The unanimous decision by a three-judge Superior Court panel came barely two weeks after they heard oral arguments by Sandusky’s lawyer and a state prosecutor.
Defense lawyer Norris Gelman said he planned to ask the state Supreme Court to review the case.
Sandusky had argued his trial lawyers did not have sufficient time to prepare, a prosecutor made improper references to him not testifying on his own behalf and the judge mishandled two jury instructions.
The opinion by Judge Jack Panella said trial judges have discretion about whether to allow pretrial delays, and that in Sandusky’s case the judge carefully considered the continuance requests.
Let’s all join together and give this douchebag a big, family style “Ho, sit down! FOREVER.”
