Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer Karl Rominger wanted to buy coeds drinks at the bar

I think it’s safe to say that Jerry Sandusky found the only attorneys creepy enough to represent him in court. You may recall that Sandusky’s prominent lawyer, Joe Amendola, reportedly impregnated a teenager during the ’90s. That same creepster also asked on national TV if a CNN interviewer was “somebody cute.” His other lawyer seems to be on the same page.

Karl Rominger (pictured with Sandusky) tweeted late Monday to say he would be buying drinks at a State College, Penn., bar. Best of all? He requested the presence of females:

Rominger seemed to think he was playing some sort of joke on Twitter with that tweet, calling people “suckers” for getting hooked to the coeds line. I fail to see what’s so funny about a guy defending Jerry Sandusky buying drinks for Penn State students at a State College bar and requesting the presence of females, even if he was joking, which doesn’t seem to be the case.

And in case you think this whole thing was fake, there is photo proof that Rominger was at the bar.

Meanwhile, Sandusky released a statement on the eve of his sentencing to proclaim his innocence against “false allegations.”

What a team, huh?

Sarah Jones avoids jail time after pleading guilty to having sex with student

Sarah Jones managed to avoid jail time after pleading guilty to having sex with her 17-year-old former student while she was a high school teacher.

The former Bengals cheerleader entered her guilty plea on Monday after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual misconduct and felony custodial interference, which was less than the two felony charges she initially faced. Her lawyer says she made the guilty plea to avoid having her “embarrassing” and “steamy” text messages read in court. Her trial was set to begin on Wednesday.

As if Jones getting off without jail time and without having to register as a sex offender weren’t enough, she and the now 18-year-old boy walked out of the courtroom holding hands. Keep in mind that Jones was married when the two began their inappropriate relationship.

If you’re wondering why prosecutors agreed to the deal, it’s apparently because the boy and his family would not cooperate with them. They seem to approve of the relationship between the two.

Jones resigned from her job as a teacher at Dixie Heights High School last November and agreed to never apply for a teaching job again. She is currently working as a legal assistant in her lawyer’s office.

So probation for five years, no jail time, and no need to register as a sex offender for Jones? Man did she get off easily. Do you think a male in that position would have been let off on such easy terms? Is that fair?

Alabama teabagger Brian Downing pleads guilty, could face two years in prison

Back in January, an Alabama fan turned himself in after he was caught on camera placing his genitals on an LSU fan who was passed out in a restaurant. The teabagger, Brian Downing, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to two counts of obscenity for sexually taunting the victim and reached a deal that calls for him to be sentenced to two years in prison. Sentencing has been set for Nov. 29.

According to an Associated Press report, the unidentified LSU fan is also suing Downing seeking damages for “mental anguish, humiliation, embarrassment, anxiety and depression and damage to reputation.” He is also asking for lost tuition payments after claiming he had to withdraw from school following the incident. Downing’s attorney said that his client has lost his job and his family is suffering financially.

We’re not going to get all life-lessony on you here, but I can guarantee you Downing never imagined a prank like that would have him facing two years in prison. There’s no excuse for doing something like this to begin with, let alone in an era where cell phone cameras are constantly recording. Now he has to pay a hefty price.

Olympic sprinter Tianna Madison sued by parents

Tianna Madison won gold in the 4x100m relay at the London Olympics, and now the sprinter is being sued by her parents.

Jo Ann and Robert Madison filed a lawsuit on Thursday that alleges their daughter defamed them with false statements and allegations, according to The Chronicle-Telegram.

The Chronicle-Telegram reports the lawsuit alleges that Tianna Madison falsely accused her parents of mismanaging her money and allowing a boy who molested her to enter their home while their daughter was present.

Madison’s parents, sister, and niece flew to London to watch her compete in the Olympics and witnessed her gold medal-winning race. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported last month that Tianna had broken off contact with her family and did not provide a reason.

We were unable to locate statements online where Tianna defamed her parents (who really aren’t famous) in print. We did find an interview with CNN where Tianna described some of the difficulties in her life.

“I dealt with a bankruptcy; I had my home foreclosed, and these were things that happened and I was not honest with myself about why I was in that situation,” she told CNN.

“I had to deal with being molested in high school and what that did to my self-esteem and my ability to trust. I overcame this with the love and support of my husband,” she said.

There was no mention of her parents in either statement.

We’ve reached out to the attorney for Jo Ann and Robert Madison for clarification of their accusations. They’re seeking $50,000 in damages.

We have our doubts about the legitimacy of the charges; suing their daughter for alleged defamation pretty much tells us all we need to know about them as parents.

Kris Humphries sued for allegedly giving woman herpes

You know we have officially hit a new low on the planet when people are being sued for allegedly passing STDs, and when we’re actually publishing stories about them, but alas, here we are.

Kris Humphries reportedly is being sued by a woman who alleges he gave her herpes. TMZ provides details of the case:

Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010 at the Newsroom Cafe on Robertson Blvd. in L.A. They flirted, exchanged numbers, and she claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip.

According to the suit, Kris came on to Kayla, touching, kissing and dancing with her. Kayla claims he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times … including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom.

The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes — and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease.

Kayla says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes. Her symptoms included a sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful legions on her genitalia.

At least we have achieved some consistency: Kayla is the second woman to claim Humphries has sex without using a condom. But really? You’re going to sue him for allegedly giving you an STD? If this isn’t an awful example of someone making a cash grab at a rich person’s expense, then I don’t know what it is.

But I do know that this is much more than what Kris Humphries signed up for when he got involved with Kim Kardashian. You think he accepted that relationship with the intention of one day showing up on TMZ because he’s being sued for allegedly giving someone herpes? Two years ago, this barely would have made a ripple in the world. Now it’s front-page material. He did it to himself.

Landlord in Green Bay wonders if he can legally evict Bears fans for lying about being Bears fans

Believe me, I love sports just as much as the next guy. Sports are my livelihood, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it completely hilarious when a person can’t distinguish the line between fandom and reality. That’s not to say that sports aren’t reality, as we have all been through plenty of ups and downs with our favorite teams to know that they are. What I’m trying to say is…actually, just read this post that a landlord in Green Bay recently wrote on The Landlord Protection Agency website and you’ll probably know what I mean.

I know you guys will laugh and call me a “troll”, but here’s my very real situation.

I own a home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. My job took me down Lake Michigan a ways towards Milwaukee, but I do plan on living back in Green Bay when I retire in a few years, so I am renting the place out as I do not want to sell it. As you can imagine, people are VERY fanatic about the Green Bay Packers there. My new tenants lied to me on my application and are actually Chicago Bears fans! They have made this known by putting out Bears crap all over the front lawn (flags, lawn gnomes, placemats, etc.). This has pissed off my neighbors something fierce as they do not want to live next to such blowhards.

Basketball prospect Tony Farmer collapses while receiving prison sentence (Video)

Tony Farmer, one of the top high school basketball players in Ohio, collapsed in court on Tuesday while receiving his three-year prison sentence for beating his ex-girlfriend.

Farmer plead guilty in July to kidnapping, robbery, assault, and intimidation of his ex-girlfriend in an incident that took place last April. Farmer listened to the judge sentence him to three years in prison for kidnapping and two years for felonious assault, and thought he was going to jail for five years. Farmer was so shocked he collapsed and had to be helped up by a sheriff. The judge then explained that the sentences would be served concurrently.

Farmer’s lawyer was expecting his client to receive probation after pleading guilty. The sentence will be reviewed after 180 days.

Two teachers spoke at the hearing on Farmer’s behalf. Even his ex-girlfriend said she didn’t want him to go to prison, but that hardly mattered to the judge. After watching video of Farmer abusing his ex-girlfriend, it’s easy to see why.

Parts of the incident were captured on tape by the camera system at the victim’s apartment complex. You can watch it below via Action News 19:
