legal challenges filed by Sandusky's lawyers, including their claim that a deluge of prosecution materials swamped the defense.

Your honor, they had way too much evidence proving my client's guilt that I couldn't prepare for!

He was slandered pretty bad in the media. He really never had a chance at a fair trial.

Joe Amendola's strategy was so bad I just assumed the plan was "once you're convicted and sentenced ask for an appeal based on counsel being so incompetent it's considered miraculous your attorney didn't have you actually rape a child -- perhaps a grandchild of the judge or district attorney -- on the witness stand to prove that your technique wasn't as skillful as a multiple child rapist's should be."

7 months seems to be a pretty quick turn around on a trial that big. I don't even have a ged in law but it seems off to me.

Dude never stood a chance at a fair trial, but he is dead so who cares? Maybe he should have taken the gloves from the murder scene and not went on that high speed chase when they tried to take him in for questioning. I don't think the NAACP sanctions were right though.

Keep in mind that the Feds didn't really start with their own prosecutions until after Sandusky's trial was over. They were basically waiting in the wings to make sure the locals didn't fark up the trial. If by some miracle he gets this conviction overturned, and is able to magically make the charges disappear, he'd have a metric ass-ton of federal charges waiting for him.

The Feds didn't really want to get involved with that, as there are much bigger fish to fry. The school's cover up needs to be investigated, the governor's complete lack of action needs to be investigated, all business deals involved with Second Mile need to be investigated, etc.

According to the Wikipedias, dude got paid off with $168,000 when he retired after weathering his first rape accusation. He had a sterling reputation, lots of big-name friends in college football, numerous honors, a bronze statue on the campus, etc. He may not have been "rich" by American standards, but he had plenty of cash to spare.

His physical condition is no surprise. He was in athletics for nearly his entire life, played college football himself, and kept active even after retirement (quite a bit too active, in retrospect) running his own charity and mixing it up on the field with all those strapping lads. Probably doing a good job of it too. I know I'd pick up the pace if there was coach with a boner behind me.

I'm still not sure why he got convicted in the first place. Aren't we, as a society, supposed to be celebrating sodomy? I mean, we have a special rainbow flag for it, and costume parades, and we're even changing the laws to accommodate the very small percentage of Americans who enjoy putting their reproductive organs inside other people's excretory systems.

Sandusky may be a villain today, but he'll be hailed as a hero in the future for helping bring our nation into a new state of "tolerance."

He's in protective custody. It's not impossible that someone might launch a kamikaze shiv attack on him while he's being led from point A to point B, but figure the odds.

Jeffrey Dahmer got bludgeoned to death with a pipe by a fellow inmate, but he wasn't in protective custody at the time. He we was killed in a manner uncannily similar to the way he killed his first victim, if poetic justice pleases you. Wouldn't expect it for Sandusky though.

It think the feds only want him for a couple of out-of-state trips he made with kids. It's a waste of time and money unless he can get out of his state conviction.
 
2013-01-10 09:47:55 AM
He's right in a sense. If he'd had a "fair" trial it would have resulted in his being dragged by his root out into the public square and being beaten to death with sticks by his victims.

I seriously hope you're trolling when you compare consensual homosexual behavior between two of-age people with predatory pedophilia and ephebophilia. You're not that stupid, are you?

Still waiting on the results of that second mile investigation, Pennsylvania. They were supplying him with children to molest, children that he would return in "slightly used" condition. If people at penn state knew what was going on, the people at second mile HAD to have known what was going on.

So yeah, where's that investigation?

More,"your honor, they sat on this evidence for months and only gave it to us on the eve of trial." Contrary to what's portrayed in the movies and television, you aren't allowed to spring evidence on the other side as a gotcha. That's what hurt Samsung in their trial vs. Apple.

That said, trying to argue this on appeal, rather than via a motion to suppress during the trial, is likely doomed from the start.
