Jerry Sandusky’s appeal on his child molestation conviction is set for oral arguments before a state appeals court Tuesday, September 17th.  He is seeking to have his conviction overturned and a new trial.  Pennsylvania’s Superior Court will decide whether prosecutors made an improper reference to the fact that Sandusky did not testify (the Constitution gives every American the right not to testify at their trial without an inference of guilt), whether jury instructions were incorrect, and whether the defense was given enough time before trial to prepare.  Sandusky is serving 30-to-60 years for convictions related to the sexual abuse of 10 boys.
