A judge has told lawyers he is done hearing about Jerry Sandusky.

The Post-conviction Collateral Relief Act petition for the former Penn State football defensive coordinator serving a 30- to 60-year sentence for 45 counts of child sex abuse crimes has been dragging on for years, through two judges and months of motions and evidentiary hearings.

On Sept. 5, both prosecution and defense asked Jefferson County President Judge John Foradora for one more chance to argue in front of him before he renders his decision.

Foradora denied that motion on the same day.

According to the date stamp on the document filed with the Centre County Prothonotary, the judge’s order was revived in Bellefonte on Sept. 7.

However, that county’s website didn’t post the document until Thursday.

Sandusky maintains his innocence. He remains incarcerated at Somerset state prison.
