Report: Convicted ex-PSU coach ‘trying to learn’

  • December 23, 2012

WILKES-BARRE (AP) – Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky maintains his innocence and tells a Pennsylvania newspaper he is “trying to learn from … the struggle and circumstances” as he focuses on an appeal of his conviction on child sex abuse charges.

The Citizens’ Voice says Sandusky sent a note from his prison cell declining an interview, saying his attorneys have told him to stay quiet. The paper said Sandusky wrote that “there is much to learn” and that “nobody who covered the case and reported it has the time or took the time to study the allegations … Justice and fairness were not a focus.”

Sandusky is serving a sentence of 30 to 60 years in prison. He was convicted of abusing 10 boys.
