Lawyer: Sandusky ‘Defiant’

A lawyer for Jerry Sandusky said on Monday that the former football coach “wants people to know he’s not guilty” despite being convicted of 45 out of 48 counts of sexual abuse. “He’s defiant and wants the truth to be told,” said Karl Rominger, one of Sandusky’s lawyers. “He wants people to know he’s not guilty.” Rominger also said Sandusky is not suicidal, while also asking that the former coach be removed from isolation in jail—Sandusky said he would go “nutty” if he remained in isolation. A judge on Monday ordered county probation officers to evaluate whether Sandusky is a sexual predator, which could factor in his prison placement.
