Sandusky Trial
 
Figured we would put this crap in one place.

Amendola sounds like a complete chump of an attorney.

I hope he gets what he deserves. Going into this case, it seemed like the prosecution was going to be sloppy. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I could see him being found not guilty because of there remaining reasonable doubt, which would be down right sickening.

I believe the Feds are investigating the situation as well, so if PA fails, the Feds would likely not mess it up.

The entire defense is such ******** as far as I'm concerned.

Ngatachance92 06-12-2012 12:31 AM

They need to bring back castration.

Yeah, Amendola himself is a pedo.

tjsunstein 06-12-2012 08:01 AM

Sandusky is going to kill himself in prison. I'd bet money on that.

How fitting would it be if he got sexually abused and than killed by a fellow inmate?

Nalej 06-12-2012 08:15 AM

Death by stoning. Do it.

Amedola is one of the most well respected attorneys in the area and is doing his job to defend his client. I think Amendola would have preferred a plea deal. Im not sure how it works but I believe he has to do what Sandusky asks (to take it to trial) so he tried to make a case defending him, but it's backfiring. He didn't seem prepared for victim #4's testimony. I hope for the sake of the people he has hurt that Sandusky is found guilty on all counts and sent to rot in prison.

I have a feeling that this will happen

From reading that writeup, it sounds like he is getting slaughtered. You are right that a lawyer has to do what his client tells him or the lawyer can drop his client. For some reason he didn't drop Sandusky. Maybe he wants Sandusky to get nailed and is bumbling around on purpose because his conscious is getting to him.

Also, if a pedo that impregnated a 16 year old girl, then used the law to legally emancipate her from her parents to protect himself is one of the most well respected lawyers in the area, then your area needs some serious self reflection on it's value system.

Quote:

According to documents filed with Centre County Courthouse, Amendola served as the attorney for Mary Iavasile’s emancipation petition on Sept. 3, 1996, just weeks before her 17th birthday.

The emancipation request said Mary graduated from high school in two years with a 3.69 grade point average and maintained a full-time job — but makes no mention of any special relationship between her and her lawyer.

Roughly around the same time, however, Iavasile became pregnant with Amendola’s child, and gave birth before she turned 18, her mother, Janet Iavasile, alleged in an interview with The Daily.

He was born in 1948 and was around 49 at the time.

Hopefully he'll get what he deserves. If the prosectution has every vitcim that's lined up as well prepared as this first guy, it should be pretty easy.

The last line of the article is perfect. At least there is one example of a victim who has everything going well for him, despite this pos.

"A kid who once cowered in front of Jerry Sandusky was all grown up Monday afternoon, strong, fearless and unafraid of telling it all on good old Jer."

Few things in life can be guaranteed, but this one is about as close as possible.

Wow I didn't know about the 16 year old girl. Thats pretty crazy. I meant that he is well respected as a lawyer in the area (regarded as one of the best), although maybe not as a person. I never heard anything about Joe Amendola the person. Definitely lost respect for him after reading that.

How did he not get disbarred for that?

Good point. However, I don't want the girl raped, I just want her thrown in jail for 20 years along with her mother.

Wow, there is hard evidence that the head of PSU buried the information (along with another executive). The head football coach was informed of activities.

Bad bad stuff.

Giantsfan1080 06-13-2012 07:47 AM

The whole PSU program is dirty including Paterno. Just crazy they covered this all up for so long.

Yeah, I find it hard to believe that JoePa wasn't involved. Those above him knew and covered things up, those below him knew and either ignored it or didn't pursue it well enough, and he was explicitly told it was happening.

And he pushed the guy out of a job in 1998 after he was investigated.

It's a pretty messed up situation.

Bulldogs 06-13-2012 09:53 AM

Glad to see Sandusky going down.

SolidGold 06-13-2012 10:20 AM

What do you guys think of McQueary? I kind of feel he has been unfairly painted as a target. I remember a lot of the talking heads at ESPN criticizing him. He witnessed a pretty ****** up situation, it is easy to say how someone SHOULD react without ever actually having to experience witnessing something that terrible first hand. He was in a pretty tough spot- a young grad assistant at the time - I think he regrets not doing more (which is natural) but it looks like the whole PSU power structure was involved in this whole Sandusky mess/cover-up so McQueary probably felt powerless to some extent. He reported it to those he thought needed to know and would address the situation. Sorry for the rant - he was just the wrong guy at the wrong place at the wrong time.
