Jerry Sandusky's Lawyer

McQueary May Be a Liar

11/15/2011 6:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe AmendolaJerry Sandusky's lawyer says he thinks he found the boy who was allegedly raped in the shower that has become the flashpoint for the scandal, and the man -- now in his 20's -- is saying it never happened.

Joe Amendola told Ann Curry on "Today" ... prosecutors have never given him the names of the accusers, but he believes he's found the alleged victim, and if indeed it is him Mike McQueary is lying.

Amendola also concedes, "It is possible Jerry did this [molested kids]" and if he did he should be punished. 

And Amendola echoes what Sandusky told Bob Costas last night ... it was bad judgment for him to shower with young boys, especially when there were complaints as early as 1998.

The New York Times is reporting ... around 10 additional alleged victims have now come forward.

McQueary is a complete ass, but at least he did fess up to what happened. That makes him about a half an iota more respectable than Sandusky and his lying, perverted self. He will pay for what he's done one day, but too bad that day won't come as quickly as it should.

I hope Jerry rots in prison. But if he is hanging his hopes on this guy for a lawyer, he is in deep trouble!! I've never heard a lawyer say his client may have molested children. Not hard to figure out how these two came to know each other.

Ha, Sandusky and his attorney know damn well he will go to prison for life and must do "whatever it takes" for his client.

And, even if the main witness doesn't come forward he still has victims that will testify for the state..

So, he's going to prison for life or ends his own life before trial.. Either way, his life is basically over.

You know what else is possible? That the victim has no desire to be re-victimized.

It's especially common for male rape victims to deny it happened.

Yea, OK. This guy just decided to tell this lie one day. To hi sdad and to Paterno. How would that benefit him? Sandusky was already "retired" at that time and working with Second Mile. Lyers usually have some benefit to themselves from their lies.

If even ONE child was ever hurt by him, he should burn in hell.

In the Bob Costas interview Jerry Sandusky's voice has an effeminate sound unlike any football coach I've ever heard. Bill Belichick or Mike Ditka never tip-toed through the tulips like Jerry Sandusky. Even Bob Costas' face had that "eeww" expression for a moment.

I agree 100% with this lawyer Amendola. My grandma may have also done it instead of Sandusky. If you read this Amendola, let me know and I will give you her number and address. Give me a break. It was bad judgement to shower with young boys, especially when there were prior complaints? How about dropping the part of the thought that starts with "especially", and just say it's a bad idea for GROWN men to shower with young boys? What a numb-nut.

You call showering with young boys just a" bad judgement" . That not what WE call it . McQ saw this kid in a terribe compromising situation . He should have REMOVED that boy asap and called child protective services. We have a duty to protect little kids from predators and that's the bottom line.

What's with this story anyway? They don't know the names of the alleged victims, but they found somebody who may or may not be the rape victim to say it didn't happen.

Sounds like they just wanted to pull some some subliminal crap and get McQueary and lying in the same sentence, hoping that's all people hear.

This guy is an idiot. You shower with kids and there are complaints you KNOCK IT OFF right then and there. I don't know any men who would shower with their OWN kids, and especially not someone elses. How did this guy even think this would be appropiate behavior?

So somehow everyone is a liar except for this slimy lawyer and his even slimier client? Sorry but people aren't that stupid. He should be locked up for life and his lawyer should be locked up with him for spouting all these lies.
