Judge to consider Sandusky's latest request for new sentence

Jerry Sandusky’s legal effort to have his decadeslong child molestation sentence reduced will be the subject of a hearing Tuesday in a Pennsylvania courtroom. The former Penn State assistant football coach’s defense lawyers and state prosecutors are expected to argue about whether Judge Maureen Skerda should reconsider his 30- to 60-year term for sexual abuse of 10 boys. A state appeals court ordered Sandusky resentenced last year, resulting in Skerda’s decision in November to impose the same sentence Sandusky had received after his 2012 trial.
