BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - A new filing by Jerry Sandusky's appellate lawyer lists seven grounds for his appeal of a 45-count conviction for child sexual abuse.
The document filed Monday is an outline of the claims that the former Penn State assistant coach plans to raise in an effort to overturn his conviction and sentence of 30 to 60 years.
Defense attorney Norris Gelman says Judge John Cleland should have given Sandusky's attorneys more time to prepare for trial and should have issued instructions to the jurors about the years that passed before victims alerted authorities to the abuse.
Other grounds include a prosecutor's reference during closing argument to Sandusky giving a television interview shortly after he was arrested, and the admission of hearsay about a shower attack witnessed by a Penn State janitor.
