SANDUSKY TRIAL Appeal

Now that Jerry Sandusky has been found guilty his lawyers are raising issues of timing of the trial for their appeal.
The AP reports: Jerry Sandusky's lawyers said they tried to quit at the start of jury selection in his child sex abuse trial because they weren't given enough time to prepare, raising an argument on the trial's speed that could become the thrust of an appeal.
