Jerry Sandusky's lawyers are asking the state Superior Court to reconsider a judge's Jan. 30 ruling rejecting his bid for a new trial.

Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys, asked trial Judge John M. Cleland to overturn the jury's verdict.

Cleland rejected Sandusky's arguments that his lawyers did not have time to mount an effective defense.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence. He continues to maintain his innocence.
