BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) – A judge has signed an order directing former Penn State assistant football coach be brought to court for an appeal hearing in Centre County.
Sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years in a state prison in Greene County for his 2012 conviction on more than 40 child-sex abuse charges.
He’s appealing claiming his trial attorney was ineffective.
WJAC-TV reports that Judge John Cleland signed an order directing Sandusky be moved from the state prison to Bellefonte for the Oct. 29 hearing on his post-conviction relief act motion.
The attorney general’s office, which prosecuted Sandusky, has already filed a response calling the appeal is “baseless.”
Sandusky also claims he was prejudiced because three former Penn State administrators awaiting trial on alleged cover-up charges weren’t available to testify at his trial.
