Jurors could soon begin hearing defense witnesses as the child-sex abuse trial of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky enters its second week.
Eight of Sandusky's alleged victims have already testified in
the case, along with witnesses connected to two other alleged
assaults for which prosecutors haven't named accusers.
The prosecution could rest its case Monday morning. Sandusky
flipped through papers has he arrived for court in a car driven by
attorney Joe Amendola.
Sandusky is charged with 52 counts stemming from alleged
encounters with 10 boys over a 15-year span. He denies the
Amendola suggested in opening statements that Sandusky would
testify in his own defense but that's a risk that defense lawyers
are normally reluctant to take.
