The Associated Press reported Thursday that the panel will hear the appeal at Dallas Senior High School in Luzerne County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, on Sept. 17.

Court documents stated these will be oral appeal arguments. No information was available regarding whether or not Sandusky would be present at the appeal hearing.
Sandusky was sentenced in October 2012 to 30-60 years in the state prison after being found guilty of abusing 10 boys. He is serving his sentence at a state prison in Waynesburg, Greene County.
Sanduskys attorneys filed an appeal to his conviction in February.
