BELLEFONTE — Nothing is out of the realm of possibility when it comes to Joe Amendola.

That much is certain after he sounded off to reporters inside the Centre County Courthouse while the jury was deliberating whether his client, Jerry Sandusky, is guilty on 48 counts in a child sex abuse case — an apparent violation of the gag order imposed by Judge John Cleland.

Cleland broke up the impromptu press conference by summoning for Amendola.

Among the flurry of remarks from Amendola, per reporters' Twitter feeds inside the courtroom:

The jury ordered dinner around 5:30 p.m. and continued to deliberate past 6 p.m. The jury, attorneys and Cleland reconvened around 3:30 p.m. to discuss a supplemental charge regarding alleged victim No. 8.
