Jerry Sandusky Upset By NCAA's Penn State Sanctions

The person least qualified to be upset about the NCAA's sanctions of Penn State has finally weighed in on them. Jerry Sandusky is, unsurprisingly, unhappy with what the NCAA did to Penn State.

Sandusky's lawyer, Joe Amendola, says that Sandusky suggests Penn State officials, including former coach Joe Paterno and former president Graham Spanier, did nothing wrong in their response to allegations of serial sexual abuse of children by Sandusky.

"He said, 'To do what they're doing to Penn State is so unjust,' Amendola said. "He loves the program and he loves the university."

Sandusky, who also maintains his innocence and is writing a statement to read to the judge at his sentencing, is likely not someone whose opinions on miscarriages of justice should be disseminated by his lawyer.

However: the lawyer for Victim 4, who testified against Sandusky in the trial that saw the former Penn State defensive coordinator convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse, told a Pennsylvania TV station that Victim 4 was unhappy with victims not being consulted by the NCAA before the sanctions were handed down.
