If you’ve been hiding under a rock, you might have missed the news that Jerry Sandusky’s adopted son came forward with accusations that he, too, was molested by the Penn State coach. This is the son who had been sitting with the family during the early part of the trial.
I haven’t been following the trial closely, so do any of you know why Sandusky didn’t take a deal? From the bits and pieces I’ve heard of the trial coverage, it sounds like the prosecution has been hammering nails into this guy’s coffin from the start. Is Sandusky so deluded that he thinks there’s some justification for his actions, or that people will believe him instead of the 10 victims the prosecution had lined up?
