WOW!!  WOW!!

Sandusky Closing Arguments: The Prosecution
Posted on: 1:17 pm, June 21, 2012


BELLEFONTE — Deputy Attorney General Joe McGettigan blasted a conspiracy theory presented by the defense attorney before him as closing arguments played out Thursday in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial.

“The great thing about conspiracy theories is that they carry no weight, you just let them go on and on until they collapse under their own weight and that’s what we have here, ” McGettigan told jurors. “It requires everyone to be fooled or corrupt.”

Amendola insinuated in his closing argument earlier in the morning that police pushed victims to make up abuse, that alleged victims were out for money and that investigators were just out to convict a powerful man however they could.  McGettigan attempted to counter all of that while summarizing the case against Sandusky for the jury.

“I feel like I have the pieces of 10 souls in my pocket, pieces of childhoods ravaged, boys memories are destroyed,” said McGettigan about prosecuting this case.  ”I can’t give them back portions large or small of their souls, neither can you. It can’t be done. But what you can do, should do and must do is what the evidence calls for.  Give them the justice he really deserves, find him guilty of everything.”

McGettigan told jurors if they believe Amendola and think that this whole investigation and trial are really a conspiracy, that means alleged victims, police, prosecutors, parents, children and youth investigators and many others all had to be working together to cook up a story to convict Sandusky.

“If you believe this is a conspiracy, bring in the handcuffs and bring us all along,” said McGettigan.

Jerry Sandusky prosecutor: 'Give him the justice he really deserves'

Published: June 21, 2012 Updated 27 minutes ago

BELLEFONTE — The prosecution in the Jerry Sandusky case mocked the defense's "grand conspiracy theory" and said the case is proved by the testimony from eight young men, which shows Sandusky exhibited the range of grooming behavior of a "serial predatory pedophile."

"It's about those boys," said prosecutor Joseph E. McGettigan III during his closing arguments, pointing to pictures of the eight boys who are now young men who testified last week that they were abused by Sandusky.

Good afternoon Monkeys.

I just wanted to add this wonderful piece by Sara Gamin..she was only 22 years old when she first broke this case and is only 24 years old now.  She is a PSU graduate herself ..and also a lover of the Nittany Football team..but that never stopped her from breaking the story and her relentless pursuit of the facts ..so that gives me faith that although the trial is held in Penn State territory, if anything that will work against Sandusky..he has brought great shame to all Penn Staters.  As has the past president and board..but they will have their day in court soon too.

Looks like the prosecution was able to explain to the jury what grooming behavior is and how it progresses through their closing arguments today.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Prosecutor tells jurors to 'find him guilty of everything'
Published: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 1:13 PM     Updated: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 1:58 PM
 By SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News The Patriot-News


In the last seven days, jurors have heard from eight men who say they were abused as boys, and two men -- a janitor and assistant coach Mike McQueary -- who both said they saw or heard about something inappropriate between Sandusky and a boy in a shower in the same locker room on campus.

Sandusky smiled slightly as McGettigan explained to jurors what psycho-sexual disorder is and how people with it think.

They believe children love them, that what they do doesn’t hurt children, that they have a special relationship with children and that’s why others can’t know what they do with children “in basements and showers, saunas,” he said.

“He thinks these are relationships,” McGettigan said. “At the expense of the child.”

McGettigan, who is soft-spoken even when he raises his voice, told jurors to look at the alleged victims as stages of Sandusky’s pattern.

First, touching. Then sexual touching, on genitals. Followed by extended touching for a period of time. And finally, as three of the accusers described, full-blown sexual acts that are repeated over time.

“You saw the spectrum of grooming behavior and you saw the spectrum of relationships in this case,” McGettigan said.

They even saw what happens when they were “discarded for someone else,” he said.

They heard Sandusky tell a counselor he felt “used” by a young boy.

“Mr. Amendola would have you believe there was this great drive to punish or get this person,” McGettigan said. “... If you conclude there is a conspiracy, then someone bring handcuffs for me, and ... everyone else.”

TY MuffyBee for adding the link for me.

I hope the jury comes back quickly with a verdict.

They have been given outlines so to speak about each of the victims and their charges against Sandusky..so it shouldn't take too long..I think at the lastest a verdict by tomorrow.

I look for Dottie to divorce this old pedo and take what she can get before the civil suits start..and they all these vics a right to sue Sandusky , PSU, Spanier, Schultz..etc.

Just want to make it clear I am not a fan of Dottie..I think she has known in the back of her mind for some time that her husband had issues with young boys..and I have little respect for the fact that she didn't do anything other then hid her head in the sand.  She could have confronted him and stopped the overnight visits and reported any activity out of the norm..but she didn't.

I am sure she has heard an earful from Matt and his ex wife about what happened to her grandson..and I imagine that is what would have been addressed by Matt..his own son's grooming by Sandusky the good grandad.  And any seemingly suspicious behavior of Sandusky's over the years..and there had to be some..

Sandusky accuser: 'I'd
punch him in his mouth'

NBC News    Rock Center exclusive: Travis Weaver, at right, is the first accuser of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky to speak publicly about the sexual abuse he says he endured. He has testified in front of a grand dury but was not called as a witness in the current trial. He's suing Sandusky and the university. NBC's Kate Snow reports.

Did Joseph McGettigan provided the defense with a smoking gun in regards to the psycho-sexual disorder?  His closing statement revealed to the jury the guilt of Jerry Sandusky  beyond a doubt but ... on the other hand ...

Why was Jerry Sandusky smiling throughout Joseph McGettigan closing arguments?  What does he know?

This entire article is a must read.  It is downright scary.  I do not know what to think.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Prosecutor tells jurors to 'find him guilty of everything'
Published: Thursday, June 21, 2012, 1:13 PM


BELLEFONTE -- Jerry Sandusky began to smile in court as prosecutor Joseph McGettigan described for jurors ....

He smiled ....

He smiled ....

He laughed ....

He smiled ....

He smiled ....

He smiled ...

He smiled again ....

And finally, right before court adjourned, Sandusky smiled ....

Sandusky smiled slightly as McGettigan explained to jurors what psycho-sexual disorder is and how people with it think.

They believe children love them, that what they do doesn’t hurt children, that they have a special relationship with children and that’s why others can’t know what they do with children “in basements and showers, saunas,” he said.

“He thinks these are relationships,” McGettigan said. “At the expense of the child.”
