Lawyer says Sandusky not considering seeking plea

HARRISBURG, Pa. - December 1, 2011

Joe Amendola said Thursday that he'd consider "possible alternatives" with Sandusky if new charges are filed that involve more victims than the eight boys covered by the 40 pending criminal counts.

Amendola says Sandusky has never considered a plea in his case.

The 67-year-old former Penn State assistant coach is awaiting a preliminary hearing on the charges.

Amendola says the topic of a guilty plea came up as a "what-if" question about potential additional charges in a recent interview and that if more charges are filed he would only then discuss the possibility of a plea.
