Bellefonte, Pennsylvania (CNN) — Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, who is accused of sexually abusing boys, remains “totally prepared and committed to proving his innocence” after waiving his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday, his attorney said.
“We’re ready to defend. We’ve always been ready to defend,” attorney Joe Amendola told reporters outside the Centre County Courthouse after the brief court hearing. “Today’s waiver has nothing to do with conceding anything. There have been no plea negotiations. There will be no plea negotiations. This is a fight to the death. This is the fight of Jerry Sandusky’s life.”
