He "helped" these "troubled" boys. All the helping gave him this "saintly" reputation and their backgrounds provided his defense that they are so troubled and had such a rough life that they must be liars, too.

Sounds like the reasoning some people used against Michael Jackson's accusers.

Yep. Including the defendant is wealthy and the accusers just want money defense, too.

I saw today that the loyal family friends have come out to say his adopted son was "troubled" and is lying.

Maybe he's "troubled" because his adoptive father raped him?

People can be so ignorant. If the son was/is troubled it could very well be because he was molested while growing up. That would probably cause just about anyone to be troubled.

ETA: Heckles beat me to it.

No kidding.

But the son was a foster child brought into the Sandusky home at ten years old.

So, this kid was taken out of his original home due to dysfunction, and put into the clutches of a rapist? I'd be more suspicious of Matt Sandusky if he wasn't affected by all that.

I'm more flabbergasted that after the pretty much incontrovertible evidence against Sandusky, people would think the adopted son was lying. It's sick.

Are there any people left who think he's innocent? His victims have testified as well as witnesses who saw him raping the kids. How on earth can anyone still think he's innocent?

My father went to Penn State and is a huge backer of their football program. His reaction to this is how horrible for the Penn State football team. Not for the victims. I asked him these same questions, and he said "Anyone can make something up".

8 out of the 12 jurors have ties to Penn State. Be prepared for acquittal or hung verdicts. I'm at a loss.

In my heart of hearts, he will be convicted on all 48 counts. But I also know how 'justice' can work. If my father was on the jury he'd hang it.

Verdict is in. They have sealed the courtroom until all 48 counts are read. Results to come soon.

Apparently a verdict has been reached

ETA: The other day on the news there was a friend of the family talking. She kept saying "but he has HELPED thousands, what about the thousands he has helped?" So I guess she figures it's ok to rape people, so long as you've helped more than you have raped.

According to MSNBC, even one of Sanduskey's own lawyers said a few hours ago that he would have a heart attack if Sanduskey was not convicted on at least some of the charges. Now, the judge had put a hold on attorneys making any comments, so he was shushed away as soon as he said this...
