Sandusky lawyer: shower comments not about client

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - An attorney for former Penn State assistant
football coach Jerry Sandusky says his recent comments about some
children needing instruction on how to shower did not apply to his
client's conduct.
Carlisle attorney Karl Rominger said during an interview with
WHTM-TV earlier this week that troubled youths sometimes have to be
taught basic life skills "like how to put soap on their body."
Rominger said in a statement Thursday that he only was giving a
hypothetical example of why a person might shower with an
adolescent. He noted he never said Sandusky touched boys in a
shower.
Sandusky is charged with more than 50 counts of child sex abuse.
Sandusky has admitted showering with boys but says he's innocent of
the abuse charges.
