Jerry Sandusky's lawyer says his client intended to take the stand, but didn't in order to avoid his adopted son, Matt Sandusky, testifying as a rebuttal witness. Amendola also told Anderson Cooper that Sandusky never considered a plea agreement.
I agreed with the verdict for many reasons not withstanding all the victims testimonies. However, the late arrival of the proposed Sandusky son testimony sent an alert in my mind. Why don't I believe him? the timing? last attempt because of childhood problems? Also, was Mr. Sandusky so desperate as to carry over his sexual encounters within the eyes of his own family.....maybe, but probably more like the knowledge the son had on the father is more my guess.
If this does not prove that Sandusky's guilty, I don't know what is.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
