Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who’s serving a 30- to 60-year sentence for sexual abuse of several children, testified by video link from prison Tuesday in an effort to get his pension back after the benefits were canceled because of the conviction. The decision by the State Employees’ Retirement Board to end Sandusky’s pension stopped the $4,900-a-month payments and disqualified his wife from collecting them. Sandusky argues that he was already retired when the crimes he was convicted of committing took place. But at issue is whether his continued ties to the university after his retirement, including payments, made him a “de facto” Penn State employee. Despite his conviction, Sandusky continues to maintain his innocence.
