Testimony Nears End in Sandusky's Abuse Trial

A jury could hear from Jerry Sandusky himself as the former Penn State assistant football coach's child sex abuse trial nears its end.

Sandusky and attorney Joe Amendola didn't answer questions as they arrived at court Wednesday morning.

Amendola hinted in last week's opening statements that Sandusky could take the stand in his own defense. But the defense has stayed quiet on the issue since then.

Judge John Cleland has said testimony could wrap up Wednesday, with closing arguments Thursday.

The jury has already heard from eight accusers who claim Sandusky abused them.

The defense countered with character witnesses and sought to portray investigators as planting the seeds of those abuse reports during interviews with the alleged victims.

Sandusky faces 51 criminal counts involving 10 boys. He denies the allegations.
