Why did Jerry Sandusky waive his preliminary hearing?
i don't get it, everything was ready to go.

What would the point have been? I mean the DA isn't going to give away any more of their case then they have to. The Grand Jury already did enough of that for them to need to give away anything new as to how they plan to proceed. So Sandusky's lawyer didn't want to tip his hand as to the defense. Really the hearing was waived because he KNEW he wasn't going to get it thrown out and that it was going to go to trial. Waiting until the last minute is basically a way to delay the trial.

Because he has NOTHING to gain by having all this testimony in the public, He needs a plea bargain and some deal.
He has no other way of not spending the rest of his life in jail; and I think no matter WHAT he does, that's going to be the result

He well knows the charges filed against him and knows that there will be enough evidence to continue to trial and he and his lawyers have decided that it will not help is case to have them all read to the public once again.

Because he is most likely trying to buy time, Or Guilty.
