(AP) Pennsylvania prosecutors say there's no reason the state Supreme Court should take up Jerry Sandusky's molestation conviction on appeal.


State court officials on Thursday posted a filing by the Pennsylvania attorney general's office that said the former Penn State assistant football coach hasn't put forward "special and important reasons" the justices should consider the appeal.


Sandusky argues his lawyers were rushed to trial and prosecutors improperly referred to his decision not to testify.


He also says the trial judge should have issued a jury instruction on the delay in reporting by his victims and that the judge erred by telling jurors to weigh evidence of his good character against all other evidence in the case.


Sandusky's lawyer says his earlier filing laid out why the appeal ought to be heard.
