McQueary Files Defamation Suit Against Penn State
10/03/'12

 A former Penn State graduate assistant who complained he saw former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky showering with a young boy on campus in 2001 and testified at his sex abuse trial this summer sued the university on Tuesday for what he says is defamation and misrepresentation.
 
Mike McQueary's whistle-blower lawsuit claims his treatment by the university since Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges in November has caused him distress, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment. It seeks millions of dollars in damages.
 
Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre declined to comment on Tuesday, and McQueary's lawyer Elliot Strokoff did not return a phone message.
 
The lawsuit discloses that shortly after Sandusky was charged, the university's then-president, Graham Spanier, met with athletic department staff inside the football stadium and expressed his support for athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz, who had been charged with perjury and failure to properly report suspected child abuse in the Sandusky case. Spanier also issued a public statement with the same message.  ::snipping2::

Jerry Sandusky asks court to return his wife's cash
October 4, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is asking a judge to return $50,000 in cash to his wife and release their home, which was put up as collateral for $200,000 bail.

His lawyer, Joe Amendola, filed a motion today asking for court officials to release the money and the claim on their home to Dottie Sandusky.

Resolution on Sandusky inquiry brings state House to a halt
October 3, 2012

HARRISBURG -- An effort by state House Democrats to force a vote on a resolution seeking details about the Pennsylvania attorney general probe of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal led to an abrupt halt to today's legislative debate.

A measure calling for a federal investigation of how then-Attorney General Tom Corbett's office handled its inquiry into allegations against the former Penn State University assistant football coach has been sitting in committee since December.

Democrats filed a motion in June to bypass the typical legislative process and bring the measure up for consideration by the full House. When they attempted to do so today, House Speaker Sam Smith, R-Jefferson, ended session for the day.

House Republicans Block Investigation into Gov. Corbett’s Handling of Sandusky Case
October 4, 2012

House Republicans threw a temper tantrum on the floor of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives yesterday, when Rep. Tim Briggs brought up a tabled resolution that would urge the US Attorney General to investigate Gov. Tom Corbett’s role in the botched investigation of Jerry Sandusky.

According to public information, H.R. 520 would call for the appointment of a federal counsel to “investigate the handling by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General” of the Sandusky case as well as “investigate whether that alleged sexual abuse may have violated Federal law.”

The resolution was initially proposed by Rep. Anthony M. DeLuca in December of 2011 and set aside at the end of June when there where more pressing issues to be attended to like — you know — the budget. But yesterday, Rep. Briggs (@RepTimBriggs) challenged the H.R. 250′s stagnation by bringing the resolution up for a vote.

Judging from the response of house Republicans, they had no interest in discussing the issue.

According to Rep. Jesse White, Republican Speaker of the House Rep. Sam Smith immediately halted the day’s proceedings upon the mention of H.R. 520 by Rep. Briggs. With the pounding of Speaker Smith’s gavel, the house officially went into recess, with no motive given to explain the abrupt and limiting response.

At this time, nearly all of the Republican majority walked off the floor in silence including the Speaker of the House himself. Shortly after, house GOP members dimmed the lights and left the capitol.

Sandusky Lawyers Prepare an Appeal
Updated October 4, 2012

Jerry Sandusky's defense lawyers plan to focus the appeal of his conviction on child-sex-abuse charges on two main arguments—that they didn't have enough time to prepare, and that the jury was prejudiced by a prosecutor's statement about an interview Mr. Sandusky gave.

The former Pennsylvania State University football coach is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Centre County Court. Several victims are expected to give statements at the sentencing. It isn't clear whether Mr. Sandusky, who didn't testify at his trial, will do so.

Lawyers Joe Amendola and Karl Rominger plan to file a post-sentencing motion with trial judge John Cleland within 10 days after the hearing, Mr. Rominger said. The lawyers will ask the judge for a reduced sentence and a new trial, Mr. Rominger said. If the judge doesn't grant a new trial, the arguments will form the basis of an appeal to the Pennsylvania Superior Court, he said.
 ::snipping2::
The appeal process could take years, experts said. If Judge Cleland denies the post-sentencing motion and appeals with Pennsylvania Superior Court and the state Supreme Court fail, the next step could be for Mr. Sandusky's lawyers to say they had provided "ineffective assistance" and to withdraw. The appeal process would begin again at the trial court level.

Mr. Amendola has previously said that he will withdraw from the case, but it's not clear when. He didn't respond Thursday to requests for comment.

Some of Sandusky's jurors hoping he receives life sentence
October 6, 2012

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Jerry Sandusky should be sent to prison for life when a judge sentences him Tuesday, according to several of the jurors who convicted the former Penn State assistant coach of molesting several boys over a period of years.
None of the jurors interviewed by The Associated Press said they have had second thoughts about their June verdict, and several plan to attend the sentencing.
"There isn't a sentence that I believe is harsh enough for what he has done and how it has affected the university," said Joan Andrews, a juror who has worked for Penn State for 41 years and held football season tickets since 1969. "I don't think there's been one individual in this entire campus that has not been affected by this."
Four jurors said they plan to be in the courtroom when Sandusky, 68, learns the penalty for sexually abusing boys he met through a charity for at-risk children. Sandusky's own attorney expects his client to be handed a long sentence from Judge John Cleland after conviction on 45 counts.
 ::snipping2::
Sandusky's sentencing on Tuesday will begin with Cleland determining whether he qualifies as a sexually violent predator, a status that would require lifetime registration if he is ever paroled.

Sandusky, alleging broad conspiracy, insists he's innocent of child sex-abuse charges
October 8, 2012


By Sevil Omer and M. Alex Johnson, NBC News
New in this version: Statement from Sandusky; reaction from attorney; links to text and audio

Updated at 7:02 p.m. ET: Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky insisted Monday that "I did not do these alleged disgusting acts" and blamed a systematic conspiracy among police, Penn State administrators and the media for his conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Sandusky said his accusers were part of a "well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists (and) civil attorneys" to falsely put him in prison.
"My wife has been my only sex partner, and that was after marriage. Our love continues," he said.

 ::snipping2::

'He was set up'
"I believe that he was set up; I really do," Amendola said, according to NBCPhiladelphia.com. "I believe this started out as an investigation into Jerry Sandusky, but as soon as the power people realized that this could also implicate Penn State, I think this took on a life of its own."

 ::snipping2::
Amendola said Sandusky's spirits are unbelievably high.
"He really believes that he's going to be vindicated," Amendola said. "He really anticipates he's going to get another shot at this.

If it wasn't so infuriating on behalf of the victims this would really be sad.  Now, where are the profilers to tell us what they think?

I heard his little speech on Tv this afternoon, How dare him blame these boys for this mess. He is not the only one who needs to go to prison. There was an awful lot of covering up going on.
If it was my son, I think I could mete out some punishment that would do some justice. He would be begging to go to prison. Low life POS. All just my own opinion. He should be put to death. He will get just what he wants in prison. He will surely be taken better care of than us old folks on the outside.

Jerry Sandusky court sentencing, hearing updates: Sandusky says he is falsely accused
October 9, 2012

ELLEFONTE, PA - In an audio statement made while he sits in a jail cell awaiting sentence, convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky says that while others make him out to be a monster, he is a falsely accused man who will continue to protest his innocence.

"They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart," the former coach at Penn State says. "In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts."

Sandusky co-counsel Karl Rominger confirmed the audio statement is legitimate.

"If he wants to say that, God bless the First Amendment," Rominger said.

Penn State University's ComRadio first aired the audio clip on its website Monday evening.
 Sandusky, a 68-year-old former defensive coordinator who ran a charity after he retired from coaching, faces up to life in prison. He is scheduled to be the final speaker at a sentencing hearing Tuesday.

"We will continue to fight," he said in the audio statement. "We didn't lose the proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories that were influenced by people who wanted to convict me."
 ::snipping2::
The attorney for a man who claims he was repeatedly sexually abused by Sandusky while a child said the statement is a reminder that child predators justify their actions.

"Pedophiles often believe they did not do anything wrong. In their twisted universe, they helped their victims and loved them," said Marci Hamilton, an attorney for Travis Weaver, now 30. Weaver did not testify in Sandusky's trial, but did file a civil action against the former coach.
 ::snipping2::
Jurors determined in June that Sandusky used his access to university facilities and a foundation he founded for under-privileged youth to sexually abuse 10 boys over a 15-year period.

His attorney, Joe Amendola, said Monday that his client, who is being held in the Centre County, Pennsylvania, jail, plans to read a statement before the court. Sandusky's statement should take five to 10 minutes, he said, but likely will steer clear of the argument he failed to receive a fair trial. On Monday the judge made it clear sentencing wouldn't be the place for such legal arguments, Amendola said.

On June 22, Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse, ranging from corruption of minors to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, which were laid out in graphic testimony by his accusers over the course of the less-than-two-week trial.

His attorneys will have 10 days after the sentencing to appeal the decision.
 ::snipping2::Sandusky's attorneys say they plan to appeal the guilty verdict, and will argue that the jury's opinions had been tainted by a prosecution reference to a disturbing interview their client did with NBC's Bob Costas prior to the trial.

Members of the defense team have also maintained that they were denied sufficient time to prepare.
