    Who is leaking this information? I wouldn't want to pizz off Freeh. Reading his history, he is not a man that fears others and he doesn't back down.

    That's why PSU admins. should have turned the info over to the proper authorities.

    Freeh was hired by the PSU Trustees to protect their interests. I'm sorry, to "get to the bottom of this."

    So, either Freeh is seeing that it gets leaked, or he's releasing this info to some of the Trustees, who're leaking it. Wouldn't you think?

    Because these leaks to CNN point the finger away from Trustees. And towards--well, it doesn't matter who, really.

    Pensfan. As to what you said, "Sooooooo Amendola knocked up a 16-17-year-old and now he is the "go to guy" for pedophiles. Ugh! The accelerated rehab program is only for those who will admit that they are a child abusing pedophile."

    My understanding is that an ARD requires no admission of guilt; it's more like a nolo plea. If i'm wrong, doesn't matter.

    I think Sandusky chose Amendola because he'd been very successful, as Ganim pointed out, in getting plea deals in centre county for locals, and esp for PSU students and student-athletes.

    What Sandusky didn't realize, in my belief so far, is that Amendola's power derived from his relationships within the judiciary at the county level. NOT at the state level. Sandusky was being tried by the state AG. Amendola knew where his power came from. Whatever other motives he might have had for representing JS, I don't know. Well, I mean he gets paid, like a stockbroker, whether his client wins or loses.

    I'm not the only one asking: where did Amendola's power within the centre county judiciary come from?

    A different question: why did Judge David E Grine award continued foster care placement of Matt (Heichel) Sandusky to JS and Dottie after a firesetting episode and after a suicide attempt--involving, Matt said on the police interview tape, 80 to 100 aspirin. That quantity puts you in the hospital and you're lucky to live, and not have organ damage. And in terms of liability, a firesetter who runs away and makes a serious suicide attempt--you better be all over that one. That's why Terry L Trude, juvenile probation officer wrote that letter.

    And, BTW, did Trude ever work in an office with Patty Fornicola? I thought she worked in probation, centre county. I've seen Trude's name on adult probation cases as well--in 1994 and 1999.

    Is that where Dr. Fox saw Matt and helped JS get Matt back? In the hospital, or on referral after that? And what about the girl who attempted suicide with him--the one who also lived in the Sandusky home?

    Very astute observation, pinktoes.

    I read, earlier this week on a Penn State football message board, that this information would be coming out. It was on a Penn State football board that rumors of MM having witnessed something improper between Sandusky and a boy circulated years ago. So those boards are a great source for information. (I even forked over some cash to have access to the insiders forum).

    Any "inside info" on those boards is probably coming from people with connections to the university.

    I read that too. I find it offensive actually. GOOD MEN (or women) do not decide to do nothing when they have received information from an eyewitness who saw a boy being raped in a shower. They could have found out the boy's identity (threatened JS with going to the cops if he didn't fess up or something) and they could have checked he was ok (God forbid they contact police, geez).

    If anything, I hope their careers are ruined and they regret their inactions for the rest of their pathetic, sorry lives.

    Don't you hate how Paterno describes it? "Sex between a man and a boy". Really? I have heard variations on the theme so many times in various cases. "We saw a man having sex with a child in a car." "The child was involved in a sexual relationship with the man."

    Little kids can't have sexual relationship with adults. They are not having sex with adults. They are being molested, victimized, raped.

    I know Paterno has passed away but were he alive I would tell him that there is no such thing as "sex" between a man and a boy. That's called child rape, buddy.

    Funny how we never use those descriptors when it is a woman getting raped. I never hear anyone say, "I turned the corner and saw a man having sex with a woman." It's always, "I saw a man raping a woman."

    So why are kids different? Why are kids deemed capable of having a "relationship" or "sexual intercourse" with their attacker/abuser?

    Drives me crazy. Sorry for the rant.
