Victim 4 Attorney Angry Client was not Consulted

Benjamin Andreozzi, a Harrisburg based attorney who represents Victim 4 in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial, is not happy with NCAA president Mark Emmert or Penn State.

He says his client loved Penn State Football and may have wanted to express his thoughts regarding the Joe Paterno statue and NCAA sanctions before decisions were made. Andreozzi is preparing a civil suit against the university and had the following statement in an interview with WGAL News:

The victims were not Penn State or the NCAA, the victims were the young men who testified in the courtroom and I think NCAA and Penn State owed it to them to at least consult with them before rendering a decision.

I think you at least owe it to these young men to hear what their positions are regarding Joe Paterno and the statue, regarding whether Penn State should be sanctioned from participating in athletic events. Instead Penn State and the NCAA took it in their own hands to play the role of judge and jury in this case without hearing from what could be construed as critical witnesses.

It is unclear if views and opinions expressed by any of the victims would have influenced matters, but Andreozzi wishes they would have asked.
