Maybe Jerry Sandusky’s lawyers should stop talking to the press for a while.
Karl Rominger, a Carlisle, Pa., lawyer who recently joined the accused child molester’s defense team, says Sandusky may have showered with boys to teach them “basic hygiene skills.”
“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills,” 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.”
Sandusky, Penn State football coach Joe Paterno’s longtime defensive coordinator, has been charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse. He is accused of molesting 10 boys he met through The Second Mile, a charity he founded for underprivileged kids. A grand jury report released last month says Mike McQueary, now Penn State’s receivers coach, saw Sandusky rape a boy in a campus shower. In interviews with NBC’s Bob Costas and The New York Times Sandusky admitted showering and engaging in horseplay with boys in Penn State locker rooms, but said nothing sexual had occurred.
You pay this guy to help defend you and THIS is the best he got?!?! Mr. Sandusky, you’re goin’ to jail…
