Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is expected to appear in court today as he appeals his child-sex abuse conviction.

Sandusky's attorneys claim he was wrongly convicted and want the charges thrown out, or for the former coach to be granted a new trial, according to The Associated Press.

Defense attorneys and prosecutors are expected to present their arguments today to Judge John Cleland at a Centre County, Pennsylvania, courtroom, near Penn State's State College campus, The AP said.

In 2012, Sandusky was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison for the sexual abuse of 10 boys following tearful testimony from his victims. If his sentence stands, Sandusky, now 72, would be 98 at his earliest possible release date.

A lawsuit alleges that former House Speaker Dennis Hastert still owes him $1.8 million of the $3.5 promised for the pain and suffering stemming from sexual abuse suffered at age 14. The abuse happened at a wrestling camp where Hastert was a coach, according to the complaint. After the man, named only as plaintiff James Doe, met another victim in 2008, he decided to confront Hastert. "Hastert agreed to compensate Doe for the trauma he suffered as a result of the admitted sexual molestation and abuse," according the complaint. After paying $1.7 million of the agreed amount, the payments stopped when Hastert's bank transactions came under investigation.
