The Pennsylvania Superior Court has denied Jerry Sandusky a new trial, but it has ordered the case back to Centre County court for resentencing.

The former Penn State assistant football coach was convicted in 2012 of sexually assaulting 12 boys.

Sandusky is currently serving 30 to 60 years in prison.
