Karl Rominger, co-counsel for former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, joined Piers Morgan last night in an exclusive interview about the child sex abuse scandal rocking the nation. Piers asked Rominger about Sandusky’s admission that he enjoys “horseplay” with young boys, and Rominger defended his client’s actions. “I do think it’s strange behavior for a man of that age,” he said. “By his chronological age, I agree. By his mental and emotional maturity, however – that’s a separate question...I believe that mentally and emotionally he is much more on par with a teenager than he is a 60-year-old.”
He also talked about his client unexpectedly waiving his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday.
Rominger explained why his team gave up the chance to examine witnesses before the trial. “We do have extensive information that we’ve developed on our own,” said Rominger. “We have already seen that McQueary’s testimony is falling apart. He’s basically set by the grand jury to be an incredibly credible witness and now he’s turned out to be discredible.”
