Lawyer: Son's abuse claims gutted Sandusky defense

Matt Sandusky, whom the defense had planned to call as a witness, abruptly switched sides late in the trial, approaching prosecutors and offering to testify that he had suffered abuse at the hands of his father, the transcript shows.
Prosecutors planned to call Matt as a rebuttal witness if Jerry Sandusky testified in his own defense, the transcript shows. They later backed off, but wouldn't agree to a defense request to refrain from asking Sandusky about his son's claims on cross examination.
''Mr. Sandusky had always wanted to testify on his own behalf. He always wanted to tell people his side to the allegations in this case,'' defense lawyer Joe Amendola said during a private conference in judge's chambers. ''However, that potential evidence, whether true or not, was so devastating'' that Sandusky felt he could not run the risk of testifying and subjecting himself to questions about Matt, he continued.

Ah well. I guess the molestation game isnt what it used to be. I wish Sandusky was younger and prettier in prison.
