Sandusky horror story continues to get more disturbing (perp contacts victim #2)

Sandusky horror story continues to get more disturbing
By Gregg Doyel | CBSSports.com National Columnist
Tuesday November 15, 2011 - 11:57 AM

**SNIP**

Sandusky got out of jail for free.

An unsecured bond is merely a promise -- that's all Sandusky had to give, a promise -- that the defendant will show up in court. If he doesn't show up, he'd be on the hook for $100,000. By then, the defendant could be in Costa Rica.

The judge who set Sandusky free for free? Her name is Leslie Dutchcot. She has volunteered with Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile, the one that allegedly provided him a hunting ground for victims.

Sandusky capitalized on that, too. While he was out of jail -- not wearing the monitoring device prosecutors wanted him to wear, a request former Second Mile volunteer Leslie Dutchcot declined -- Sandusky helped his defense team find one of the alleged victims.

Can you believe that?

Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola, told Costas on Monday night that someone from the defense team -- Amendola didn't specify who; it could have been Sandusky himself -- has been in contact with the child known as alleged Victim Two.

"So you found him, the Commonwealth has not?" Costas asked.

"Yeah. Interesting, isn't it?" Amendola replied.

No. Not interesting -- it's horrifying. Presumption of innocence is one thing, but contacting an alleged victim before the trial? Horrifying. The idea that Sandusky or his people were able to talk to the alleged victim, influence the child's testimony, even persuade him not to cooperate at all ... it's beyond comprehension that such a thing could happen.

This whole mess is totally unbelievable.
It proves beyond a doubt that sports is KING.
If you are in one of the "GOOD" sports, IE: Football, Bass-A-Ball, Baseball you can pretty much do as you please. . . .

Oh, I almost forgot.

There needs to be another Grand Jury convened immediately to indict for witness intimidation and tampering on the part of ~both~ Sandusky and his lawyers.

He will walk.

Enough time has gone by, and enough influence brought to bear, that the witness’s stories will contradict each other. Look at the guy who said he say the abuse in the shower! He has changed the story he told to the grand jury already.

Of course, Sandusky could “kill himself” and remove all traces of who he was supplying.

NAMBLA,the ACLU and the DNC have tons of money saved up for either his defense or for providing him a comfortable life in another country.

Sandusky is the “Poster Boy” for the Lefts' beloved “relative values” campaign and he will not see one day in jail.

I read the stories at your links, does it strike anyone odd that a college football coach would have more than 5 million dollars in assets so that he has to sell his wife the house for a buck as part of estate planning. Does coaching pay that well?

It’s quite possible the judge is following standard procedure. I would like to know what her record is dealing with similar suspects. Unfortunately, the media doesn’t report this minor detail. If she’s treating him like everyone else then I don’t have a problem with her decision. I can see why she let him out. If he’s not a flight risk (if he flees, where is he going to go where no one would recognize him?) and has no previous record then it doesn’t make financial sense to jail him, which involves round-the-clock protection, paying for meals and meds, etc. Now, if he’s getting special treatment, then that’s a different story.

By contacting victim #2 - Sandusky just affirmed the veracity of the charges.

He read the complaint - recognized the activities described and knew which child he abused on that date, in that place, under those circumstances.

He just convicted himself.

She should have disclosed the tie at the very least, recusing herself would have been best. Also, Sandusky was not required to put any money down to get bail, and was not required to wear a monitoring device despite the fact there’s an elementary school behind his house. Dutchcot was way out of line on this one.

good article with one scary correction.

He doesn’t live less than a half mile from the school. His property borders the playground.

No monitoring ankle bracelet.
No money down for bail.
They are openly admitting to contacting victims - a violation of his bail “agreement”

Does this get any worse?
Maybe if he was a serial killer it would be worse.
Other than that...

Thanks. I figured as much as I've been unable to find a story that said what her party affiliation was. If she'd been a Republican it would have stated so 3 times in the first paragraph.

IMO, it is an extremely low probability that as a homosexual pederast Sandusky was operating solo. Such criminals have a group, or a web of like-acting associates.

At Penn State, it sure does. I am sure JoePa was making at least $5 Million per year. That’s what you get when you can convince 110,000 people to watch you work for a large sum of money.

What I find incredible at this point in time is that after the acts by Sandusky for at least 16 years involving the grounds and football team at Penn State, the people turning away, the cover ups (in '98 and '02), the current non-action by the campus community is beyond belief. Their slow-motion, piecemeal response dooms this university and will be a stain on the state of PA as well.

Incredible.

According to recently released information, he was only making about $500,000 per year. As others have said the real dough comes from other revenue streams. Any way you slice it he’s a one per center.

No kids, but two Yorkies. One is named “Bark”ley—isn’t that special.

Her awards are basically BS awards.There is nothing substantial. Even those “Lawyer of the Year” awards are just resume enhancers that don’t really mean anything.

Too bad her Yorkies can’t read. They’d proabably snarl at her when she got home.

“This was not the secret that they are trying to make out now,” one person involved in the inquiry said. “I know there were a number of college coaches that had heard the rumors. If all these people knew about it, how could Sandusky’s superiors not know?”

This is just so sickening, appalling, horrifying and disgusting! It seems Sandusky was allowed to carry on with a wink and a nod. There seems to have been an unspoken don’t ask, don’t tell policy implemented by all those who surrounded Sandusky.
