Jerry Sandusky ‘wants people to know he’s not guilty’
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | June 25, 2012 | (Associated Press)

Posted on 06/25/2012 3:04:43 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Jerry Sandusky wants “people to know that he’s not guilty,” a lawyer for the retired Penn State assistant football coach said Monday.

Sandusky—once considered Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno’s heir apparent—was convicted Friday of 45 counts for sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.

Karl Rominger, who helped defend the 68-year-old retired defensive coach, visited him at the Centre County jail, where he is being kept under observation and away from other inmates pending a psychological review that will help determine the next step toward his sentencing, which is in about three months.

“He’s defiant and wants the truth to be told. He wants people to know that he’s not guilty,” Rominger said. “That would be his hope.”

Also Monday, Judge John Cleland ordered county probation officers to evaluate whether Sandusky is a sexual predator, a finding that could be a factor in his prison placement. Such orders are pro forma in sex abuse cases. Sex offenders are required to undergo treatment while in prison, so Sandusky, if deemed a predator, would likely be sent to a facility with such a program.

Rominger told The Associated Press that Sandusky said he’s not suicidal and that he wants to get the separate psychological examination done so that he can receive visits from his friends and family.…

I am sure there are several young anus’s that would call that a lie. Hopefully Jerry will be in a very small cell with a very large Bubba or two.

Too late for that now, Jerry....

If your defense lawyer couldn’t make the case for you at the trial, then there is probably little recourse.

Seeya in about three centuries. But who knows, you may still win pardon, or at least a commutation of the sentence, long before then.

Or there may be an error in the findings of the court, and you get turned loose on a technicality.

You STILL ain’t gonna get to coach again at Penn State.

Not guilty because what he did wasn’t wrong?

What about the Penn State guys that failed to report him? Next.

Jerry must be a Democrat. He lost on 45 of 48 counts, and thinks folks will change their minds if only ‘the truth’ gets out. In fact he’s claiming innocence. Now there’s a Democrat for ya...

Disbelieving ten different people requires a tremendous amount of doubt. And then there's his adopted son.

Getting a jury to be unanimous on 45 out of 48 counts isn't easy either.

Wife came home with a small Sandusky joke last night.

Sandusky was found guilty and has gone from Penn State to the State Pen.

Ok I'll believe it just after I believe Obama when he says that the RECESSION is his fault. (Since I doubt that he'll say that, I won't believe you Jerry!)

What was poor Jerry to do if his “sexual orientation” was for boys. How is that his fault? That’s the argument he should have used - maybe he could even get a parade going in honour of his sick “orientation”, a.k.a. perversion.

Maybe he should have called Dan Savage, who could have then painted him as a “good pedophile” . . .

Salve

{Sandusky—once considered Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno’s heir apparent—was convicted Friday of 45 counts for sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.}

I will like to ask legal experts on this forum of American Law one question: 15 years of disgusting behavior, vomiting, I am sorry, it makes me ill, question to Law experts: Someone had to cover for him all these years, why are they not being persecuted as well, they are as guilty as him. Will families be able to get retribution from this suppose well University? (Honestly no money can repair damage.) Are they under investigation, or is this just one shot deal?

As for him, Jerry, I will not use word Sir, for you don’t deserve that respect from me, meet your new boy friend friend boy name Hans etcke Bruno, make sure you make him happy.

You Jerry, no words...for if I will write here what I think of you, Jim will cancel my account very swiftly. I think American people have spoken enough. I feel sad of those you abused, you are ............God have mercy on your soul.

Merci.

My dad had a memory that stored up ever gag he ever heard. Which was useful since he was a salesman.

I bet I heard him tell that gag 40 years ago and I don’t doubt he had heard it 30 years before that.

Are there any new jokes?

Why is the press still giving this piece of trash attention forcing his victims to go on enduring his sick mouth? He was found guilty and should have been taken out back and shot down like the rabid dog he is. Instead the MSM seems to glory in this creatures evil.

That's because he's a typical sodomite, a pioneer in making the world safe for all predatory packers. Many of the vile RATagandists are packer/munchers.

“From Penn State to State Pen”

Oh, that’s a very old joke. When I chose to go to PSU, back when Paterno was one of the youngest coaches, people at school and even within the family joked that I was going to the State pen.

One of PA’s state pens is just down the road from Penn State. Rockview would have been a familiar sight for Sandusky. I rather hope he winds up there, on the inside looking out. It is not a friendly place.

Graterford would be better...make the family travel 400 miles r/t for every visit.

The enablers should suffer, too.

How many nights do we think Dottie Sandusky will lay awake all night wondering WHO she has been sleeping with all these years?

I don’t feel sorry for her at all.

She has spent alot of her life in denial & now Jerry is proving he is still caught up in his own denials.

WSJ said he’s likely headed for a minimum security facility for elderly inmates - more like assisted living than jail.

...actually this particular attorney attempted to make the case that Jerry’s actions with boys in the showers were instructive, in other words, that since they were from deprived backgrounds they didn’t fully appreciate cleanliness, and Jerry was simply showing them how to lather up properly...
