HARRISBURG — A lawyer for former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says his client has gotten his fighting spirit back after his child abuse conviction and sentencing.


Attorney Karl Rominger (RAH'-mihn-jur) says Sandusky hopes prison officials will find a way to house him under less restrictive conditions.


Rominger met with Sandusky for several hours Friday at Greene State Prison in southwestern Pennsylvania. He says his client's outlook has improved since he was sentenced two months ago to decades behind bars even though he's alone in his cell for at least 23 hours a day.


He says Sandusky's fight is 100 percent back and he's working on an upcoming hearing and planning appeals.


Sandusky was convicted of abusing 10 boys in a scandal that rocked Penn State. He maintains he's innocent.
