Jerry Sandusky Claims Innocence in Primetime Interview

Jerry Sandusky is no longer known as the former defensive coordinator of Penn State who turned the school into Linebacker U.

Nor is he the man whose good standing with the community inspired the ice cream flavor “Sandusky’s Blitz” at the local creamery. He’s now a predator, or as Bob Costas aptly described him in an interview on NBC’s Rock Center on Monday night, a monster.

It's difficult to understand the reasoning behind Jerry Sandusky's attorney Joe Amendola to request his client be interviewed on national television, as a criminal trial looms with mounting evidence against the former Penn State defensive coordinator.
