Jerry Sandusky Waives Hearing, Suggests Victims May Have Colluded


"I knew how stressful this day would be for him. I can imagine this is terrific for my client knowing that they don't have to relive the horror up on the witness stand," Boni said.

"I think he would like justice served in the way least stressful and that means not having to testify," the lawyer said.

Boni also said, "I hope this means that a plea deal is down the road."

Lawyer Ben Andreozzi, however, read an angry statement from his client, identified in the grand jury report as Victim 4.

"This is the most difficult time of my life. I can't put into words how unbearable this has been all my life, both physically and mentally. I cant believe they put us through this until the last second," he wrote.

He vowed, however, "I will still stand my ground and speak the truth," and underlined the word truth several times.

Amendola said he hopes a trial date can be set for the summer or fall of 2012.

Several of Sandusky's six adopted children and his wife, Dottie, were among the 20 supporters who joined him in the courtroom.
