WATCH: Ann Curry's Devastating Question To Sandusky's Lawyer

NBCNEWS.COM - "Today" anchor Ann Curry had some tough questions prepared for Joe Amendola on Wednesday, the lawyer of Penn State's former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who waived his client's right to a preliminary hearing.

Jerry Sandusky has been charged with over 50 counts of serial sexual abuse against minors. Sandusky's preliminary hearing was going to include the testimonies of 11 victims and witnesses.

Curry asked Amendola if he was "competent to defend Jerry Sandusky," based on the fact that he waived the preliminary hearing on Tuesday, and permitted his client to speak to the media on more than one occasion.

Curry also questioned if Amendola had "done his homework," since he said he waived the right to the preliminary hearing because he was not permitted to question the accusers' credibility, which was a standard proceeding of such hearings. "How could you not have known this until the 11th hour?" Curry asked.

Amendola seemed surprised by Curry's questions and told her that yesterday's preliminary hearing would have only provided the media with "a feeding frenzy." "We had very little to gain," he said.
