A Pennsylvania judge is expected to decide if former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky deserves a new trail.

Judge John Foradora says he will publish an order and opinion at noon Wednesday.

Sandusky is appealing his conviction on 45 counts of abuse involving 10 boys.

He is currently serving a 30- to 60-year prison term.

Sandusky argues his lawyers didn't represent him well enough during his 2012 trial.

He also says prosecutors never revealed that some victims changed their stories.

If granted a new trail, Sandusky will likely seek to be released on bail.
