Sandusky’s Shower Defense
December 16, 2011 by staff
Sandusky’s Shower Defense, Sandusky’s new lawyer, who recently joined his defence team, has heaped further controversy on the disgraced Penn State coach. Attorney Karl Rominger tried to explain why Sandusky showered with boys, saying that some of the children helped by his Second Mile charity lacked basic hygiene skills.
Rominger told WHTM-TV in Pennsylvania: ‘Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.’
Rominger later told the station that media accounts of his explanations have become ‘somewhat exaggerated’.
Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach, backed out of a preliminary hearing at the last minute on Tuesday.
After the hearing, another of Sandusky’s lawyers Joe Amendola inadvertently made a mockery of his client’s case when he held an impromptu press conference outside the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.
Amendola said that the grand jury report outlining the child sex-abuse charges was deeply flawed – including allegations that Penn State coach Mike McQueary witnessed Sandusky rape a boy in a campus locker room and that he told this to Joe Paterno.
He said to them: ‘If you believe this (allegation) then I suggest you dial 1-800-REALITY’
Unluckily for Amendola – and Sandusky – it turns out this is the number for a gay-sex phone line with an opening message informing the caller it is the ‘hottest place for triple-X action’.
