Jerry Sandusky Said to Be Distraught Over NCAA Sanctions Against Penn StateHARRISBURG, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky‘s lawyer says his client is distraught over the NCAA penalties issued to Penn State’s football program and that he maintains his innocence as he awaits sentencing.

Defense attorney Joe Amendola made the comments in a phone interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. Earlier Wednesday, Amendola told a Centre Daily Times reporter that Sandusky was beside himself over the sanctions.

Amendola says Sandusky told him that even if people believe he’s guilty of the crimes for which he was convicted in June, it would be “ridiculous” to think Penn State administrators engaged in a cover-up.

Amendola says Sandusky wants county jail officials to remove him from what is effectively solitary confinement. The lawyer says he expects sentencing to be in September, but no date has yet been set.
