More on Sandusky

19 Jun

So I saw http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/19/12298878-psychologist-testifies-mental-disorder-could-explain-jerry-sanduskys-behavior?lite and, for one, I’m not all that surprised he’s using the mental disorder defense in his trial but what is totally incongruous is he’s been charged with 52 counts of abuse… yet, witnesses for the defense are testifying that he’s “a good and caring man with a stellar reputation in the community.”

Really?  Those kinds of men, to my knowledge, don’t wind up having to face such charges because, duh, his rep can’t be all that stellar if he’s on trial.  You could see one person making the allegation and reasonable doubt could come into play… but with the number of victims, nah, it stands to reason that he’s not as squeaky clean as those witnesses are testifying to.

Again, we see our somewhat quirky justice system at work; he’s claiming a mental disorder and, who knows, maybe he does have one… but does that excuse the crimes he’s on trial for?  If this defense does anything, his legal team could be hoping that he gets sentenced to a psychiatric facility instead of prison which, of course, means he gets off with what amounts to a slap on the wrist; anyone else facing these kinds and number of charges is without a doubt looking at some very serious prison time, mental disorder notwithstanding.

So, okay, check this out.  I saw where a child pornographer was extradited back to the US to face more charges than Sandusky is facing; according to that article, this guy is like the king of child pornography and maybe even pedophilia so, um, what’s his lawyers gonna do, say he has the same mental disorder Sandusky does… even though professionals disagree that this particular disorder and Sandusky’s crimes are unrelated?

I seriously doubt it’s gonna fly and Sandusky’s defense would have to come up with some really compelling shit to introduce reasonable doubt into the jury; somehow, “I knew what I was doing was wrong but I couldn’t help myself!” isn’t going to make the jury feel sorry for him anymore than the jury’s gonna believe that the police – and not the DA’s office – was coaching witnesses; those cops are not the LAPD and Sandusky ain’t OJ.

Jerry just really doesn’t want to go to prison and wind up facing a different kind of justice system and the kind that gets his mouth and ass full of cock at the least, beaten to death at the worst.  Given the nature of his crime, if he’s convicted, wherever he goes to serve his sentence will probably mandate him being segregated from general population because his life will definitely be at risk – but that doesn’t guarantee that he’ll be safe – prisoners are some rather inventive people.

I don’t think this is going to go well for Jerry; rumors of his testifying are running around and, well, putting him on the stand wouldn’t be a smart thing for his lawyers to allow – the thought might have the prosecution drooling because, of course, they would just LOVE for him to take the stand so they can get a direct crack at him.

    Mental illness? Yea fucking right! He is a predator of the worst kind. He had a whole organization dedicated to at risk kids. He knew what he was doing and there is nothing wrong with him. If he gets off, there will no faith left in the justice system.

      Well, hi, LB! Where you been? There’s one really sad truth about justice: What you know is one thing, what you can prove in court is another and, oh, yeah, logic and common sense have little to do with it. Me, I’m thinking he’s guilty because, duh, someone did catch him doing some kid in the shower and, as a result, uncovered all of his dirt while they were at it. I get that his lawyers have to do something but claiming a mental disorder (and one not associated with pedophiles, by the way) is clutching at straws.

    The sad part is he has money, so who knows what is going to happen? If any jury in the world doesn’t convict, they know him personally. Seems like everyone in that area is affiliated with Penn State in one way or another. I am just hoping for he best. Although, I know he is guilty as sin, I am not going to assume he will go to jail. Lawyers have a way of making things appear how ever they want!

    HEYYYYYYYYYYY! I have been so busy, I haven’t been on much. But, I am glad I came to check in on you, you have some good stuff going on. =)

      Yeah, it does seem that the more money you have, the better the law works in your favor, huh? But, this ain’t about the school, who will have their day in court from what I understand to answer the question of whether or not they had a responsibility to turn Jerry in when they knew what he was doing – and on campus, too. The jury just might come back with a unanimous guilty verdict but when it’s time for sentencing, well, that could get interesting because not only does the judge have to pronounce sentence based on current law, he also has to consider any mitigating circumstances and, well, Jerry could either wind up with what amounts to be several life sentences… or sentenced to something much more lenient.

      I decided not to watch the trial on CourtTV; their talking heads got on my nerves during the Michael Jackson trial by saying shit designed to stir up the pot and instigate viewer response and emotions while not really speaking to law so much. They’re on-screen personalities… but they’re also lawyers and, well, they reminded me why Shakespeare suggested that, “First, we kill all the lawyers…”
