Jerry Sandusky: I’m ‘Not a Monster’

Convicted sex offender and former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky appealed his 2012 conviction on Friday, and claimed that he was not the “monster” the media made him out to be. Appearing outside the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Penn., Sandusky ranted against "what they call victims," those he was accused of molesting. "I wasn't a pedophile," Sandusky declared. "I wasn't a preferential sex predator. I wasn't the monster I was made out to be." He called for a new trial, citing what he described as a poor defense team during his initial trial. His previous appeals for a new trial have failed.
