(Newser) – Jerry Sandusky worked hard for his pension, and he doesn't think he should lose it over a few dozen pesky rape convictions. The former Penn State coach has appealed a decision to revoke his $59,000-a-year pension, arguing that he's still legally entitled to it, the AP reports. Sandusky officially retired from coaching in 1999, meaning he technically wasn't a university employee when tougher pension forfeiture rules were imposed in 2004, his lawyer argues. The state's pension board has argued that Sandusky remained a "de facto" employee at the time, but his lawyer dismisses that argument as "illogical and untrue." (Read more Jerry Sandusky stories.)
