(CNN) – Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky will appeal his convictions on numerous counts of child sexual abuse, a member of his defense team says.
After a trial that featured emotional and often graphic testimony from eight of Sandusky's victims, jurors late Friday convicted him of 45 of the 48 sexual abuse counts he faced involving 10 victims. He faces a maximum of 400 years in prison and is expected to be sentenced within 90 days. His lawyer, Joe Amendola, says the appeal will be based partly on a lack of time to prepare.
Penn. Attorney General Linda Kelly addresses appeal questions on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," expressing her confidence that any appeal on the case will fail.
"I think the commonwealth is comfortable that there was a fair trial, that was received by the defendant in this case and that we will be successful on any appeal," Kelly says.
