Jerry Sandusky will not be getting another day in court.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will not review the former Penn State assistant's appeal following his conviction on 45 different counts of child molestation in 2012.

Sandusky appealed the decision on the grounds that his lawyers were rushed to quickly to trial, and that prosecutors improperly made reference to Sandusky's decision not to testify among other reasons. Sandusky's lawyers repeatedly tried to delay his trial due to the amount of material they received from prosecutors.

Sandusky is currently serving a 30-to-60-year sentence.

His crimes led to the NCAA levying sanctions against the Penn State football program, that included a $60 million fine and a bowl ban. The NCAA has since reduced some of the penalties against the program.
