Jerry Sandusky’s Lawyer Is Being Sued Over Credit Card Debt

A lot of it.

Defending Jerry Sandusky was a risky career move for lawyer Joe Amendola. And the bad karma–or bad resume–that followed has now been manifested in this news.

American Express Bank filed a lawsuit in Centre County Court claiming the State College criminal defense attorney owes $25,485 in charges and interest on a credit card….A February statement attached to the lawsuit against Amendola shows the attorney owes a $6,565 minimum payment. Lawyers for American Express claim Amendola refused or failed to make monthly payments and made no payments after the account became delinquent.

Amendola, of course, famously volunteered Sandusky for a nationally-televised interview with Bob Costas. [Tribune]
