Philadelphia, Pa – The 2012 trial of ex-Penn State football coach and child sex abuser, Jerry Sandusky, caught media attention all around the world. Next Wednesday’s edition of CBS 60 MINUTES SPORTS will feature an interview with the prosecutors who helped bring justice and awareness to these horrific crimes. Lead prosecutor, Joseph E. McGettigan III, and Frank Fina answer questions about the shocking scandal that led to an emotional 8-day trial, finding Sandusky guilty on 45 of 48 counts against him. On this episode of CBS 60 MINUTES SPORTS, McGettigan and Fina discuss the dramatic effects the crimes had on many people and what it was like working on such a controversial case.
This was not McGettigan’s first high-profile case. Both he and Dennis McAndrews were the prosecutors for the 1997 trial of John duPont – one of the wealthiest murder defendants in American history who shot and killed former Olympic wrestler, David Schultz, on his Pennsylvania estate named “Foxcatcher” in Newtown Square, Pa. duPont was convicted of third-degree murder and died in jail in 2010. Sixteen years later, McGettigan and McAndrews have reunited as McGettigan joins McAndrews Law Offices, a private law firm based out of Berwyn, Pa with offices in Delaware, Washington, D.C., and several Pennsylvania cities. McGettigan will handle cases involving the abuse of children, persons with disabilities and elderly citizens as well as the review of academic and organizational policies, practices, and allegations of misconduct.
