I'm not really going to comment on the Jerry Sandusky pedophile cases. The evidence looks pretty damning at this point but I'll let it play out in the courts.
But guilty or innocent, how could his attorney possibly have let him do a TV interview with Bob Costas the other day? The interview has spurred new victims to come forward.
But beyond that, given that he insisted on going on TV (I suppose clients can ignore good advice), how could his attorney have allowed him to be so unprepared? I did not watch the interview (I am not big on these select legal cases we like to try in the press), but I heard excerpts on ESPN. The guy was not prepared to answer the simple and obvious question "are you a pedophile." He hemmed and hawed and babbled and kindof said yes and no. It was the worst, dumbest interview by an alleged criminal I have ever seen, and if you ever wonder why folks facing criminal or civil charges never jump into the media fray to defend themselves, go watch this interview.
