(Newser) – Jerry Sandusky has lost his first bid for a new trial. A judge today rejected the request by lawyers of the convicted pedophile, disputing their contention that they didn't have enough time to prepare for the trial. The former Penn State assistant football coach is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence for the sexual abuse of 10 boys. Sandusky lawyer Norris Gelman says the decision means the defense will appeal to the mid-level Superior Court.

Now he wants to rape taxpayers....I think its time to take him out of solitary and let him into the general prison population.
