Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State coach who was charged with sexual abuse involving 10 boys he met through the Second Mile charity for disadvantaged children, will probably spend the rest of his life in prison, but his attorneys are busily working on a defense on the eve of Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary's testimony at a preliminary hearing scheduled for Friday. Karl Rominger says his 67-year-old client -- who's admitted to showering with boys after football camps and and was witnessed by Mike McQueary getting rapey with a 10-year-old boy in a shower -- wasn't being inappropriate, he was merely teaching the boys how to wash properly. "Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people," the attorney said. "But people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body." Speechless.
UPDATE, Dec. 16: The attorney released a statement clarifying his statement. He said he didn't say pervy Jerry showered with boys to teach them about hygiene, instead he was offering an example of why a person might shower with an adolescent. Hmm, really? Really?!
