Attorneys for Jerry Sandusky on Thursday filed a notice that he is planning to appeal his conviction to state Superior Court.

The notice requests transcripts of the proceedings involving the former Penn State University assistant football coach.

Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts against him in June and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. He was accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.

He is being housed in the State Correctional Institution Greene.

In the appeals notices, Sandusky's defense attorneys did not elaborate on the issues he plans to raise on appeal.

Last month, the trial judge rejected Sandusky's post-sentencing motions, including an argument that his attorneys lacked sufficient time to prepare for trial.

Judge John Cleland also rejected motions regarding jury instructions, hearsay testimony and a comment by the prosecution during closing arguments that referred to the fact that Sandusky, who did not testify at trial, gave media interviews after he was arrested in November 2011.
