Jerry Sandusky

Blocks Accusers

From Spilling Beans ... For Now

12/13/2011 5:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jerry Sandusky just executed a legal maneuver that will keep 8 of his accusers from telling tales of horrific sexual abuse ... but only temporarily.

The former Penn State assistant coach waived his right to a preliminary hearing this AM in his child molestation case.  The judge was supposed to hear testimony from Sandusky's accusers and then decide if there was enough evidence to justify a trial.  By waiving his right to a prelim, the case will automatically be set for a full trial.

On his way into court, Sandusky said, "We fully intend to put together the best possible defense that we can do, to stay the course, to fight for 4 quarters.  We want the opportunity to present our side."

Outside the courthouse, Sandusky's lawyer, Joseph Amendola, told the media, "There will be no plea negotiations. This is a fight to the death."

What a complete piece of crap. He scars those boys for life and now is going to drag them through a trial instead of just doing the right thing and pleading guilty. Burn in hell, Jerry, burn in hell.

Why didn't he waive his right earlier? Methinks there WILL be a plea deal.

Truth    

nTheZone says - "all real pedophiles have a collection of child pornography
Jerry does not"


I take it you know this from experience?

And just maybe he did not need a collection of kiddie porn considering he had the victims LIVE in front of him and at his disposal everyday? You really are a class "A" Moron!

Truth    

It would not surprise me in the least if he wins his case and walks away a free man.
Think - O.J., Casey Anthony etc etc....and on far lesser charges Lindsay Lohan.
The courts and the Judges are a joke and you can't depend on The United States Judicial System to give fair justice. Not to mention Italy where that Whore from Seattle was present when her roommate was murdered during a sex orgy gone bad. Again, Sandusky will hire a great legal team and have an excellent chance of skipping away to the next Kiddie Playground do continue with his perversion.

This may not happen, but he might just plead guilty in the end to prevent the embarrassment of a trial--he knows what will come out and he knows he will lose anyway.
