Sandusky said Amendola pressured him into an interview with Bob Costas just before his trial, and the decision sealed his fate. He said, ""I had no idea what was going to happen. I thought maybe they were just going to tape my response of my innocence. Amendola didn't suggest any questions they might ask."
