Jerry Sandusky's Lawyer

You know you're up the river without a paddle when your own lawyer has no faith in you -- which is exactly the case for former assistant Penn State football coach and accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky.

Jerry's lawyer Joe Amendola just told reporters he'd be "shocked" if the jury acquitted him on all charges -- adding he'll "probably die of a heart attack" if his client beats the rap.

Jerry stands accused of 48 counts of criminal child abuse -- after allegedly abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period while working as the assistant football coach for Penn State.

Jerry's lawyer likened the trial to climbing Mt. Everest -- calling it a "daunting, daunting case."

Jurors are currently deliberating. If convicted on all counts, 68-year-old Sandusky faces 500 years in prison.

No surprise there, at least he is honest. He knows his client is a homosexual child molester. When asked by the press the other day how things were going, he said "we'll see." with absolutely no confidence.

If this is a not guilty or a hung jury, I will be convinced the jury was paid off……much like I think the skank Casey Anthony jury was.

Hey, S***BAG. When you take the case of someone accused of this, and not one but TEN different victims, was the money you made worth it? Can you go home and look your wife and children in the face after trying to DEFEND this piece of hell, can't say Shyte, cause that is better than him!

Thank you TMZ for calling Sandusky an [accused] child RAPIST! That is what he is, and I'm sorry but the word "molestation" DOES minimize what he did. He is a child rapist.

The lawyer didn't say he didn't have faith in his client. He said it would be almost impossible for Sandusky to beat all 48 counts. There's a huge difference, though I realize understanding the subtleties of the English language is beyond the scope of the semi-literate crew of scribes over at TMZ.

I wish the judge would rule down a sentence Death by Sodomy. A quick and painless death is much to easy for this worthless piece of ****!

Sandusky shouldn't have put those victims ,their families and his family through this trial. He should have blown his head off.
