 HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is expected to appear in a Pennsylvania courtroom Thursday for a hearing about whether his lawyers had enough time to prepare for trial.
The proceeding in Bellefonte (bell-FAHNT) is expected to last less than two hours. The topic is a set of legal challenges filed by his lawyers over how he was tried and convicted, including their claim that a deluge of prosecution materials swamped the defense.
Judge John Cleland issued an order last week for county deputies to bring Sandusky to the hearing. He's serving a prison sentence after being convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
The 68-year-old Sandusky spent decades as an assistant to the late head coach Joe Paterno. He maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals.
