A Pennsylvania judge on Wednesday denied a motion by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky for a new trial.

Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse of minors back in October. He was sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in jail.

Michael Sisak of the The Citizens' Voice in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., reports on Twitter:

"Judge denies all of #Sandusky's post-sentence motions, affirming 30-60-year sentence, setting path to further appeals."

The AP reports that Judge John Cleland ruled that Sandusky's attorney had "enough time to prepare for trial."
