Jerry Sandusky was denied a new trial Tuesday, but a Pennsylvania appeals court ordered the disgraced coach to be resentenced for his 45-count child molestation convictions.
Sandusky, 75, was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in 2012. The Superior Court panel, however, said that the mandatory minimums were not improperly applied.
The former Penn State assistant football coach was found guilty on 45 of the 48 counts relating to 10 victims between 1995 and 2008.
The abuse ranged from grooming to violent sexual attacks, the victims testified during his trial. Sandusky has denied any wrongdoing.
The 119-page opinion page rejected the arguments made for Sandusky to be retried.
His defense lawyer, Al Lindsay, told the Associated Press they would ask the state’s highest court to reconsider.
As for the sentencing, Lindsay said: “It depends on the judge and what happens before the sentencing and after the sentencing.”
