Jerry Sandusky has filed an official appeal of his conviction and sentence on child sex abuse charges.
The former Penn State assistant football coach was sentenced to no less than 30 years in prison for abusing 10 boys during a 15-year period.
These appeals come nearly a month after a Pennsylvania judge rejected the 68-year-old's motion for a new trial.
Sandusky's case nearly crippled the Penn State football program. Head coach Joe Paterno was fired and the NCAA slapped the program with fines and sanctions.
