A Strange Defense
Joe Amendola, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky's lawyer in the child sex abuse scandal, has mounted an unconventional, and some would say an ill-advised, defense strategy, allowing his client to be interviewed by NBC's Bob Costas and the New York Times and yesterday forgoing the preliminary hearing in the more than 50 counts leveled against him. Either Amendola is uncannily shrewd or frightfully inept. There is no middle ground.
