Oh he meant the game thing that way. He's made comments like this all along. Talking about taking the case "all four quarters." Etc.

His lawyer is a dirtbag known for humiliating and doing his worst to witnesses. Oh... and he got a 16 year old client of his pregnant . Scum defending scum.

Hi,

I saw the press conference this morning after the motions were filed in court.

Currently, there are more than 50 charges pending against Sandusky.

Joe Amendola, Sandusky's attorney spoke at length .... In part, he is trying the case in the "court of public opinion," because the jury will be from "happy valley."

I understand people are entitled to a vigorous defense, regardless how vile the person or their crimes may be. That doesn't diminish my outrage at Sandusky and at all who looked the other way.

One of the many outrageous things Mr. Amendola stated was that he didn't believe that any of Sandusky's accusers should be allowed to testify against him.

Mr. Amendola also believed that all of the charges should have been dismissed. He withdrew this request this evening. You can read the news report here.

Joseph McGettigan, the district attorney in this case, told the reporters and the viewing audience that he would not "keep them long," since they had just been subjected to a "filibuster" by the defense attorney.

He also stated that the victims in this case were going to have their day in court, where they would take the stand and tell what Sandusky did to them.

In part, a lot of the "unnecessary killing of trees," as Mr. McGettigan called it, is because the defense has to put things on record or they are precluded from discussing them in the appeal briefs, should there be an appeal.

But for those of us waiting to see Sandusky get what is more than overdue, this feels like a slap in the face, not only to those Sandusky harmed, but to everyone else who has ever been harmed.

There are many things that bother me about Jerry Sandusky, but one of the most bothersome is the smile/ grin that is always on his face as he enters and leaves court.

Does he not realize the gravity of the situation? Or has he deluded himself into believing that he really hasn't done anything wrong?

What is the look that I see on his face? Arrogance comes to mind.

Jerry, enjoy your ignorance and your arrogance, for it won't last long. I do not see a future with many smiles and grins in it for you.

The boys you abused will have their day in court. And when they do, everyone will know what these boys have always known.

Don't forget, all the defense has to do is blow smoke. They don't have to make sense or prove anything.

What bothers me is that Sandusky is living at home with friends and family visiting for Easter.

He'll be on the loose for years even if there are convictions, what with the inevitable appeals.

If this thing turns out unhappily, which is a possibility, he may have to spend his retirement income hiring a full-time body guard.

His lawyer is no fuck-up. Letting Sandusky go on TV after being charged is a huge no-no but I get why he did it. It was his only play since redhead saw one incident go down. It's now evidence though. His lawyer stuck him in a corner on pleading innocent with that interview. Get the potential jurors believing he was innocent, and a victim of a witch hunt himself. Put him up there as some victim only trying to do good.

I expected his lawyer to do what he's doing otherwise from a legal perspective. Attacking the victims's credibility is job no. 1 in such cases. You'll see those kids on trial. A lie anywhere can destroy a count. So can a drug or alcohol history or even the money angle (in this case). A big reason why women don't report rapes. The redhead coach I expect to get a brutal cross. Same with the janitor.

A defense attorney has to defend. I think his goal is just as little jail time as possible. Believe it or not, the pressure is on the prosecution and the witnesses not the defense. It could also be the evidence (other than the witnesses) is very weak. Or, Sandusky could finger bigger fish and get off with probation or the charges dismissed. If Penn State was really passing around kids to big donors and Sandusky was the "madame" so to speak, I bet it goes on for years, the public will have forgot and nothing will happen. It was weird that DA disappeared before.

I remember writing a defense lawyer saying, "the best case is where the only evidence is people. People have closets to find stuff in; hard evidence doesn't. Let's go to the closet and have a look around" and "Truth is nothing more than an opinion. Let's see if they got the right one."

Judge orders gag order in Sandusky case. Sandusky's lawyer is forbidden to talk about the case from now until the trial. He won't like that:
