WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky maintains his innocence and tells a Pennsylvania newspaper he is ``trying to learn from ... the struggle and circumstances'' as he focuses on an appeal of his conviction on child sex abuse charges.

The (Wilkes-Barre) Citizens' Voice ( says Sandusky sent a note from his prison cell declining an interview, saying his attorneys have told him to stay quiet. The paper said Sandusky wrote that ``there is much to learn'' and that ``nobody who covered the case and reported it has the time or took the time to study the allegations ... Justice and fairness were not a focus.''

Sandusky is serving a sentence of 30 to 60 years in prison. He was convicted of abusing 10 boys.
