HARRISBURG, Pa. - Jerry Sandusky may have to wait months to find out if the state retirement system will reverse its decision to cancel his Penn State pension because of his child molestation conviction.
Sandusky testified for nearly three hours Tuesday before a hearing examiner who will recommend whether to reinstate his $4,900-a-month retirement benefit.
The hearing focused on circumstances surrounding Sandusky's retirement from the university in 1999 and the links between Penn State and a charity for troubled youth he founded.
The Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System stopped his pension the day he was sentenced in October 2012.
The only witnesses at the hearing were Sandusky and a retirement system employee.
The former assistant football coach is also waiting to hear if the state Supreme Court will consider his criminal appeal.
