Jerry Sandusky Attorney Karl Rominger: 'I Won The Sodomy Charge On McQueary'

Jerry Sandusky’s attorneys continued their odd behavior Friday night following the conviction of their client in 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse. Joe Amendola joked strangely with a CNN correspondent, while Karl Rominger took to Twitter.

Well I won the sodomy charge on McQueary.. so perhaps if the grand jury presentment had been accurate Paterno would not have been fired #psu

Yeah, you “won.” Way to go, winner! Of course, you also “lost” on Victim 2 — that’s the victim McQueary testified about — on charges of indecent assault, unlawful contact with minors, corruption of minors and endangering welfare of children. In a Penn State football locker room. So, uh, let’s give Joe Paterno a medal? And Karl Rominger a gold star?

Rominger continued that line of thinking in an interview on CNN, transcribed by SB Nation newsdesker Brendan Porath:

Well, obviously I am a little disappointed. I will take a little solace in the fact that the witness I cross-examined, Mike McQueary, did not sustain the count of sodomy that the government had promised would cost Joe Paterno his job.
