Jerry Sandusky's Lawyer

My Client Is SCREWED

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.

This mofo is guilty. Who are we trying to kid? I'm so sick of Justice being looked upon as a right. This guy is guilty no doubt and we have to go through all this b.s. to prove it. Lock him up and save us some $$$ with the court b.s.

I feel badly for that lawyer knowing that he had to sit in the same room and speak with that ass-hat, Sandusky as he represented him. I bet he felt physically dirty each night after dealing with him. I love, love, love that Sandusky has to pay a fortune for his legal costs and that this lawyer gets the money and at the same time knows he's a guilty piece of crap. I would guess the lawyer will donate most of his salary to sexual abuse charities when it's all done. Kind of a karma, pay it forward type of thing. Sandusky is such a piece of work that he made me dislike his wife and not feel sorry for her. That's how evil he is. Burn in hell ass-hat!

Lock him up and anyone who had any knowledge of what he was doing to young boys! All of those who participated in hiding this and keeping it a secret, all of those who did not call authorities when a child was being sexually abused or raped, all of those who had any knowledge of this and did nothing to protect those kids or kids in the future from this sick predator, they all are guilty and should be locked up. They all participated then too and abused those children, in my opinion!

Sandusky has ruined Penn State, PSU now stands for Pedofile State Universiry. If you go to Penn State tranfer, the degree is worth nothing. Paterno's legacy is ruined, he is known as the man who never dialed 911 when he was told a young boy was sodomized in the showers at Penn State. Every official turned the other cheek and allowed this monster Sandusky to rape boys. Well I hope every one of the victims families sues Penn State. I still can't believe how gutless everyone at Penn State was including Paterno

Is the lawyer setting up for an "ineffectual defense" appeal? Otherwise, it seems like bad form for a lawyer to make such public statements.

I kept hearing that Sandusky liked to take showers with the boys before he sodomized them, he would soap them up and call it horse play. Well now Sandusky will be the one in the shower getting sodomized by hardcore inmates, I wonder how much he is going to enjoy this type of horseplay?

If his lawyer said that, then it was very irresponsible behaviour for a lawyer.

He has no remorse for what he did and no remorse for Paterno and allt he other lvies he destroyed. While Paterno was being buried this ass was sitting on his front porch staring at children. Let him burn.
