On Wednesday, the NCAA announced it had picked former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell of Maine to monitor Penn State's compliance with the sanctions.
"He said, ‘To do what they're doing to Penn State is so unjust,'" Amendola said of his client. "He loves the program and he loves the university."
Amendola said Sandusky has asked county jail officials to remove him from what is effectively solitary confinement. Amendola said he expects sentencing will occur in September, although a date has not been set. Sandusky, who did not testify on his own behalf during the trial, has been writing a statement to read to Judge John Cleland at sentencing that will address all 10 sets of charges.
"Whether he winds up doing it despite what I tell him, is going to be up to him," Amendola said. "It's his life."
Meanwhile, Penn State lost a few more players, with freshman defensive lineman Jamil Pollard, of West Deptford, N.J., transferring to Rutgers, his high school coach Clyde Folsom told ESPN.
The Nittany Lions also lost linebacker Khairi Fortt to California and tight end Kevin Haplea to Florida State, according to various reports.
