Yea but it still doesnt make sense. High profile trial...if his lawyer were go get him off (and that can happen if u truly understand the justice system) that in itself is worth the standard say nothing rule..
I dont believe for a second sandusky is innocent by any means and I dont believe he would deny anything to national tv just like that...
lets be real. penn state has alot more to loose than he does....that university is trying to save face big time and its gonna cost them for years to come..
Sandusky is 'free' of the university now, the cat's out of the bag and he's terminated. In his life, they're ancient history and he's got MUCH more important things to think about. There's no way in hell the uni or its interests has any say in what he does next.
It was just stupidity. Costas was supposed to interview the lawyer, but then at the last minute the lawyer offered Sandusky for the interview. What happened was that Sandusky, like Gary Condit, thought he could appeal to reason through a direct interview with the media. Both were stupid moves, because the media hasn't cared about facts since Cronkite retired. Unfortunately, Sandusky is guilty as sin while Condit just got pressed through the pasta maker because he couldn't keep his dick in his pants and his mouth shut (thank you sensationalist media and conspiracy theorists).
Sandusky's interview followed the classic 'admit to a little bit and maybe they'll back off' pattern...... I ask you, does anyone here think you can carry a t-bone steak through a den of hungry tigers by tossing them a single buffalo wing because you think it will satisfy them?
To really make this whole post concise: Sandusky was stupid, his lawyer is resigned to the inevitable guilty verdict, Penn State has no ability to control him anymore, and he has no reason to listen to Penn State.
