Investigators, Civil Attorney Testify

Following a short recess, Joe Amendola played another defense angle, as he tried to prove that some of the accusers are in it for money.

A tape was played between Ben Andreozzi the civil attorney for Victim 4 — two investigators, and Victim 4 himself. On the tape, the investigators were heard questioning Victim 4 about his relationship with Sandusky, often pressing him to divulge more information when he seemed reluctant. “It’s been extremely uncomfortable for [Victim 4] from day 1. Jerry was a father figure to him,” said Andreozzi.

“I’m going to be honest — there is potential for a civil suit,” Andreozzi said.

Additionally, two investigators were recalled about interviews they had with the alleged victims before Sandusky was arrested. Karl Rominger accused the investigators of holding pre-recorded sessions with Victim 4. One investigator admitted that this happened “maybe once” although he couldn’t recall. The other investigator denied it altogether.

We are now in a one hour lunch recess. As Joe Amendola put it, “Your honor, if the court says it’s time for a lunch break, then I would say it’s time well spent.”
