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.

The poor children impacted by this horrendous abuse of trust have to live with it every day so it's fitting that this Monster suffers also. He is one sick, sick individual.

So is he going to give out any info on Ray Gricar when he goes down? Because my money is that he knows something about that guys disappearance. My money is on the theory that he bribed Gricar to destroy the evidence (which he did) and then whacked him when Gricar came to collect the payoff

So is he going to give any info on what happened to Ray Gricar? Because I think he knows or know someone who knows what happened to him. My theory is that Gricar was paid off (and accepted the payoff) to destroy evidence which he did but when he went to collect he was whacked by either Sandusky or one of his associates.
