Jerry Sandusky was denied a request for a new trial on Wednesday by a Pennsylvania judge. Sandusky was given an effective life sentence after being found guilty on dozens of child sex abuse charges in 2012.
Judge John Foradora denied Sandusky’s request, according to the Associated Press.
Nearly six years ago, Sandusky, a longtime defensive coordinator for Penn State who retired after the 1999 season, was arrested after a grand jury report detailing Sandusky’s crimes was released. It turned into one of the biggest scandals in college sports history as more and more details were reported.
Multiple university administrators lost their jobs, including football coach Joe Paterno. In connection to the Sandusky case, former Penn State president Graham Spanier was found guilty on a child endangerment charge and former school vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley both pleaded guilty to a similar charge earlier this year.
