Hey, here’s an idea: When you have no defense to 52 counts of sexually abusing boys, file a motion to have charges dropped!
Joe Amendola, the worst attorney in the world and the man charged with defending Jerry Sandusky, had his request that prosecutors provide more specific details (like, dates) denied yesterday. Judge Cleland, citing previous cases, ruled that while such details are part of “fundamental fairness embedded in our legal process,” there are exceptions to be made in sexual offenses against a child.
In short, the prosecution doesn’t have to provide specific dates, mostly because it’s unlikely that the kids will be able to remember them.
So, Amendola announced that he will file to have the charges dropped: [via The Daily Collegian]
Jerry Sandusky’s attorney plans to file a motion to have charges dropped after a judge denied the attorney’s request for a more specific bill of particulars on Tuesday.
According to a statement issued by Defense Attorney Joe Amendola, a motion will likely be filed next week to have charges against the former defense coordinator dropped. Sandusky is charged with 52 counts of sexually abusing boys.
Good luck with that, Joe.
