CNN- C onvicted pedophile and former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky could get his pension back.
A state arbitrator says Sandusky deserves the almost $5,000 a month check.
P ennsylvania law did not allow someone to lose a pension for Sandusky's crimes until 2004.
A jury found Sandusky guilty of 45 counts of child sex abuse in June 2012, but he retired in 1999.
A lawyer representing many of Sandusky's victims called on lawmakers to make the rule retroactive.
T he state board is expected to review the case in the fall.
