Amendola thought Victim 2 would provide a break as he began preparing Sandusky's defense. But two weeks later, Amendola said he ran into a local lawyer at the Centre County Courthouse who told him the young man who had identified himself as Victim 2 had in fact been a victim of Sandusky and intended to sue Penn State.
"I said, 'What?'" Amendola recalled. "And he says, 'He's one of the worst victims.' I almost fell down. That's not what this young man told me and my investigator."
The young man who identified himself as Victim 2 was not called by prosecutors to testify at Sandusky's trial. He has since struck a multimillion dollar settlement with Penn State, sources say. A Penn State official said there is no interest in settling McQueary's whistleblower lawsuit against the university.
