BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Jerry Sandusky's attorney said Friday he would "probably die of a heart attack" if his client is acquitted in his ongoing child sex abuse trial.
In an impromptu courtroom conversation with reporters, Joseph Amendola compared the former Penn State assistant football coach's chances to a scene from the 1994 movie Dumb and Dumber. In the film, an unlucky guy asks and uninterested girl out on a date.
"One in a million?" Amendola said, quoting the scene to describe his conversations with Sandusky. "So you're telling me you have a chance."
Amendola's comments came as jurors entered their 16th hour of deliberations on 48 counts of sexual abuse. Sandusky has denied charges he molested 10 boys over a 15 year period.
