It's been nearly three months since Jerry Sandusky was convicted of nearly all of the pedophilia charges against him, and in all that time there's been nary a wink out of Lawyerin' Joe Amendola, Sandusky's primary defense attorney. We gotta admit: We kinda miss the old lug.
We made multiple attempts to interview Amendola earlier this summer, though we got no reply from him. But Sara Ganim, who earned her Pulitzer Prize in large part by getting many of those connected to the Sandusky story to talk to her, recently caught up with him. It seems Amendola intends to try to to get Sandusky a new trial by declarin' all of his own lawyerin' to be incompetent. In the meantime, he's trying to talk Sandusky into reining in a statement the convicted child molester intends to read at his sentencing hearing later this month, since anything Sandusky says can still be used against him when he appeals. And, thanks in large part to Amendola, we all know what a gifted speaker Sandusky is.
