There’s a story out today that Jerry Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, impregnated 16 or 17-year-old Mary Iavasile in 1996. She gave birth before she turned 18. They married 6 years later, had two children together and are now divorced. Amendola was handling the emancipation case for the Iavasile. Isn’t that egregious? A minor comes to him for help to legally separate from her parents and he has sex with her! He was her senior by at least 30 years. Another child predator should be the perfect attorney to defend Sandusky, if the Grand Jury report is true.
In this video you’ll hear Amendola say that Sandusky has known about these charges for 3 years, there have been no charges since 2008 and his $100,000 bail is unsecured. He also says Sandusky is not a danger to anyone. Source
Creepy Update 11-15-11: In an interview with Bob Costas last night, Amendola hints that they have found one of the victims that the prosecutor (the Commonwealth) has not been able to find. Amendola says he would absolutely trust his children to be with Sandusky. Easy to say when that will never need to be proven.
Joseph Amendola: We expect we’re going to have a number of kids, now how many of those so-called eight kids we’re not sure, but we anticipate we’re going to have at least several of those kids come forward and say, “this never happened. This is me, this is the allegation, it never occurred.” In fact, one of the toughest allegations, the McQueary violations, what McQueary said he saw, we have information that that child says that never happened. Now, grown up. Now the person is in his 20s.
