(CNN) -- An attorney who represents alleged victims of Jerry Sandusky blasted the former Penn State assistant football coach on Monday in the wake of a recent interview Sandusky gave to the New York Times.
Ben Andreozzi, an attorney for three of Sandusky's alleged victims, told HLN's Dr. Drew Pinsky that he advises his clients not to worry about what the media is reporting but some of them -- inevitably -- read and hear about what Sandusky says.
The New York Times published an extensive interview over the weekend in which Sandusky attempted to clarify his relationships with young people.
"Some of them have seen Mr. Sandusky's interviews and I think they're appalled. They're appalled by the fact that he can't answer a simple question," said Andreozzi, who represents the person identified as Victim 4 in the grand jury report that led to Sandusky's indictment, and two other alleged victims not included in the report.
Andreozzi did not elaborate on whether he was referring to a specific question or was speaking in more general terms.
The longtime Penn State defensive coordinator has maintained his innocence throughout the investigation -- saying he only "horsed around" with the disadvantaged boys in his care -- and is currently free on $100,000 bail.
The grand jury report, made public last month, detailed 40 charges against Sandusky in a child sex abuse scandal involving at least eight alleged victims and spanning 15 years
Sandusky told the New York Times that his decades of work with troubled youths as part of his charity the Second Mile had been "twisted" by prosecutors.
"If I say, 'No, I'm not attracted to young boys,' that's not the truth," he said, according to the story published Saturday. "Because I'm attracted to young people -- boys, girls -- I ..."
His lawyer, who was present at the interview, spoke up at that point to note that Sandusky is "not sexually" attracted to them.
"Right. I enjoy, that's what I was trying to say, I enjoy spending time with young people. I enjoy spending time with people," Sandusky continued. "I mean my two favorite groups are the elderly and the young."
In response to why Sandusky's lawyer would have allowed him to talk to the New York Times, Andreozzi speculated the move was the equivalent of a "Hail Mary" pass.
"I think the evidence against Mr. Sandusky is so damning right now that they feel they have no other choice," he told Pinsky.
