I cannot imagine Sandusky would take the stand, but who knows what his thought processes are by this point

Since Sandusky presumably did not enter a plea because any sentence would be for the rest of his life he may go all in and be delusional enough to think he can charm one juror into not convicting him because he is such a great guy

They got the discovery done quick. The defense wanted to go forward.

I wouldn't put him on the stand but I haven't heard him tell the story. If they feel like they're cooked anyway they might have to go for it.

That's kind of what I'm thinking. But I'm not a lawyer.

They are putting his wife on the stand

Dottie Sandusky takes the stand in Sandusky trial

Prosecutors presumably will tread carefully with any cross of Ms. Sandusky - what an awful moment for her

Dude's going to jail... long sentence, short stay. He won't make it out alive is my guess. Can I pick Jerry Sandusky in the death pool?

I don't know him, or anyone that does but I am completely unimpressed by him. Contrast him with Clemens' attorney and it's night and day.

This is a bio of Sandusky's attorney - he apparently has a pretty good reputaton as an a attorney

http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/ind...se_attorn.html

As far as his personal reputation - not so good

Joe Amendola, the State College, Pa., attorney representing accused child molester Jerry Sandusky, has an interesting back story himself: He got a teen-age client pregnant during the mid-1990s.

Amendola, 63, married the girl several years after the birth of their child, The Daily reported Monday night, citing documents filed at the Centre County, Pa., courthouse.

Amendola represented a 16-year-old girl then known as Mary Iavasile when she filed an emancipation petition in September 1996. The emancipation petition said the girl had graduated from high school in two years with a 3.69 GPA and held a fulltime job at Amendola's law office.

The girl gave birth to Amendola's child when she was 17 years old, her mother, Janet Iavasile, said. Amendola would have been about 49 years old at the time. The age of consent in Pennsylvania is 16
