Remember Lawyerin’ Joe Amendola, the guy who tried to get Jerry Sandusky off the hook for raping boys? Yeah, that lawyer. I’m talking about the lawyer who impregnated a 16-year-old client that he eventually married. THAT GUY! Joe has been relatively quiet over the last couple years other than a flap in December 2013 when a credit card company sued him for back payments.
Thanks to an email I got this morning, Joe is back in the news. According to our real estate sources, Lawyerin’ put his 7,880 sq. ft. Boalsburg, PA mansion on the market yesterday for the low price of $1,500,000. It’s a pretty nice place.
Joe’s realtor reports:
This sophisticated 5 bedroom home is full of luxury and style around every corner. The first floor features beautiful hardwood floors throughout, dining room, spectacular kitchen with granite countertops that opens up to a family room and 2 half baths. A gorgeous wall of windows that offers superior natural lighting is featured in the formal living room. Cozy up after a long day in front of the fireplace in your first floor master suite or take a long bath in the jetted tub in the master bath that also features a wrap around shower.
Sounds amazing. The only thing I can’t get over is that it’s a house belonging to a then 49-year-old lawyer impregnated a 16-year-old client. Maybe you can overlook that. Just seems like the place might be haunted. I wouldn’t want to blow through $1.5M and then find out there are Sandusky ghosts popping out of the showers.
Highlights of Joe Amendola’s House:
• Six bathrooms!
• 2.16 acres
• Wimpy 3-car garage
Mortgage: $5,900/mo. before you get into landscaping, taxes and maid service
