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.

Hope the jury doesn't screw things up with this case, Seem the jurors these days are letting a lot of people go when they should have been put in prison. I hope it doesn't happen in this case.

His own lawyer can't seem to find a way to like the guy. This is further proff of something that I have always suspected. If they had to choose, people in general would rather spend a day with drug dealers and contract killers then an hour with a child rapist. Their actions are so beyond disgusting that pretty much anyone elses company seems good in comparison.

One can only hope his client ends up screwed. Here's hoping Bubba lines his boys up in the shower and puts him against the wall. What goes around comes around.

When your own lawyer goes on record as says He he has no faith in his own client then your done for not even Micheal Jackson's lawyers ever went on record and said '' Our Client is screwed '' so Joe Amendola really must be kicking him self in the azz right now after 8 men got on the stand and told the court when Sandusky did to them even Mike Mcquerrey saw him or heard him do stuff to a boy, So to Jerry Sandusky I hope you enjoy prison for the rest of your life you sick freak. burn in hell.

Yeah it is a daunting job to prove a guilty man is really innocent. I personally hope his azz spends the rest of his life in jar every crevice dipped in vasoline. Oh, never mind, this perv would enjoy it.

So now he's got grounds to appeal citing "ineffective counsel" ... lawyers either a complete dumbass or incredibly brilliant, either way he has a fool for a client.

May the boon of eternal damnation fall on you you pitiful excuse of a human being...and that goes for your wife too...she knew...oh yes indeed she knew...she's as guilty as you are for letting that happen...be damned you retched piece of fecal matter...

In other good news, Msgr. William J. Lynn was convicted today of protecting pedophile priests. Finally, some accountability for the Catholic pedo cult!

After this case is resolved, they should bring the parents of every one of those victims up on charges for allowing their children to be placed in that position. 97% of sex crimes are completed by someone trusted and close to the victim and their family.

And his wife should have the cell right next to him. No way she didn't know in all those years.

Come to think of it, prison might not be so bad with a 18 year old cellmate.
