Sandusky defense starts out with powerful witnesses to more boy showering

I got your back, Jerry

Maybe my lawyer friends can help me with this one, because I’m at a bit of a loss. It’s second-hand, but those in the courtroom reported on the defense’s first witness testimony from the Jerry Sandusky trial. Seems like lawyerin’ Joe is up to his old clever legal tricks again. I’m just not sure I get this one.

It seems former Penn St. assistant coach Dick Anderson was today’s star witness for Mr. Amendola. Anderson testified, in essence, that it wasn’t uncommon for Sandusky to bring Second Mile kids into the showers following a workout…and that other coaches were there. He also mentioned that it wasn’t atypical for a similar scene to play out at the YMCA. Alrighty then!

Did we miss something? The point of this defense testimony was what exactly? Oh yes, Sandusky frequently brought younger boys into the showers (not unusual at all!) and did so at multiple locations (it’s so regular!). And Dick, and other older gents in said showers, never saw anything inappropriate take place!  I hear Jack Nicholson’s voice in my head. Please, Joe. This man is on trial for 51 counts of sexual abuse. Please tell me you’ve not pinned his hopes to more than a defense that he frequently showers with boys in the Penn St. locker room and YMCA but a few coaches never saw anything inappropriate.

This will be my last post on this. I’m taught innocent until proven guilty. I’m still waiting for any shadow of a reasonable doubt to appear. So, so sad.

    It has seen that most of the people fail to identify whether the diamond is actual or replica, hence the certification is fairly important.

    When they were outside, Misty told them, they made it very clear;
    no Whitey, as the door slammed behind them. Sydney can transform herself, like a cuttlefish,
    in a wink of an eye. We need health care, but you best
    believe that bunch of moral midgets in Congress won’t be standing
    up to Pharma and the Insurance companies let alone the AMA very soon.
