Guilty with an Explanation, Your Honor

While it is certainly a difficult task for defense attorneys to "defend" the guilty, I think we can all agree that Jerry Sandusky received about the worst legal counsel in the history of criminal jurisprudence.
Sandusky’s defense attorney Joe Amendola said he’d “die of a heart attack” if his client were acquitted of all charges. 
Hours after the football coach’s conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse, Amendola praised the prosecution for handling the case in an “exemplary manner” and said he didn’t “have any problem with the jury’s verdict.”
The only thing missing was for Joe Amendola to have fallen asleep in the courtroom.
