“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills,” attorney Karl Rominger told WHTM-TV on Tuesday. “Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.”
Is this guy for real? With the entire nation bearing down on this case, this is what he comes up with. This is worse than telling my professor, “My dog ate my paper”.
Sandusky’s defense team has been full of gaffes thus far and I am beginning to question if Sandusky is even trying to win this case. It wasn’t too long ago when attorney Joe Amendola held a press conference telling reporters that anybody who believed the grand jury should dial 1-800-REALITY. That number turned out to be a gay sex hotline. Good call, Joe.
Not only that, Amendola has allowed Sandusky to speak the media. Sandusky even conducted an interview on live national television in attempt to showcase his defense, but that only made things worse. I’m not too sure on what Sandusky and his defense team is trying to accomplish, but at this point they are better off hiring Jackie Chiles. Making People magazine’s 25 most “intriguing” people of 2011 is well deserved.
