Attorney: Sandusky Was Running Shower-Based Hygiene Class

Karl Rominger (center) says Jerry Sandusky was just teaching young boys how to shower

One of Jerry Sandusky’s new lawyers presents a perfectly reasonable ludicrous explanation as to why his client may have been showering with underage boys, via USA Today:

“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills,” attorney Karl Rominger, who recently joined Sandusky’s defense team, told Harrisburg’s abc27 News Tuesday. “Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills, like how to put soap on their body.”

Sandusky has admitted to showering with boys, but claims he has not sexually abused them. Rominger said his college cross country coach often showered with the team.

Oh, sweet lord.

Is this the worst defense ever? Or the worst defense ever?

    My vote goes for ‘Worst Hygiene Class Teacher Ever’.

    Just when I think I can’t be any further appalled, Sandusky or one of his lawyers open their mouths.
