Pennsylvania Superior Court to hear appeals by Jerry Sandusky, Mike Veon on same day

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Appeals by two of Pennsylvania's most notorious criminals are up for review by a state Superior Court panel on the same day.

The three-judge panel will take up the child-sexual abuse conviction of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and the corruption convictions of former state House Democratic leader Mike Veon on Sept. 17.

Judge Jack Panella said the Sandusky and Veon cases will be the first of 45 cases the panel will consider during a two-day session at Dallas Senior High School in Luzerne County.

Sandusky, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a period of years, is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence at the Greene state prison.

Veon is serving a term of at least seven years at Laurel Highlands state prison.
