Superior Court to Hear Jerry Sandusky’s Appeal Next Month

Although it is not known whether Jerry Sandusky’s toothy grin will be making an appearance, the state’s Superior Court will hear his appeal next month.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sept. 17 in the auditorium of Dallas High School, located in Luzerne County, according to the Centre Daily Times. 

A three-person panel, consisting of Judge Jack Panella, Judge Sallie Updyke Mundy, and Senior Judge William Platt, will preside over the case.

Sandusky’s case is one of 45 that will be heard over two days during the special session. He is serving time in solitary confinement at the state prison in Greene County, meaning he would need to travel 300 miles to attend his hearing.

The appeal to the Superior Court comes after Senior Judge John Cleland, who presided over Sandusky’s trial, rejected arguments from the former defensive coordinator’s counsel. The attorneys had asked for a new trial, arguing they did not have enough time to prepare their defense and citing a disagreement with Cleland over hearsay testimony.
