Both Anderson and Brooks testified that it is common practice to take showers with children after workouts, not only at Penn State but at places like the YMCA, where they said they work out and there are often children in the showers with them.

When asked a hypothetical question by prosecutor Joseph McGettigan about if it would be appropriate for a man to be hugging a child that he did not know in the shower, Brooks said he would find that inappropriate.

Jerry Sandusky Testimony Could Introduce Unaired NBC Interview Segment
by Jason Kirk
Jun 18 11:44a
Jerry Sandusky's sexual assault trial defense team is planning on having the former Penn State assistant testify this week, despite the obvious risks. Sandusky will surely face a much more prepared and forceful line of questioning than the one he faced when attorney Joe Amendola gave Bob Costas a surprise interview opportunity, and even then Sandusky came across as, at best, a creepy mess.

And the interview that NBC aired wasn't even the worst of it. NBC says prosecutors have contacted them for a transcript of some of the unaired portions, including lines like, "I didn't go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I've helped."

But how can the prosecution raise this item if they've already rested their case, as they formally did Monday morning?

"If Sandusky takes the stand, it could open the door to introduce it," said SBNation.com's David Fucillo, who's much smarter than me at legal happenings

I thought NBC was hitting a low level with the Zimmerman case, but they've reached lower than I thought possible.  How can they possibly explain this?????

Prosecutors want damning Sandusky interview footage NBC didn't air

The disturbing answer first came to light when NBC's "Today" show aired previously unseen transcripts last Tuesday.
 

The timing of this is questionable to me.  NBC waited until after the pros rested its case.  Why?

From 8 hours ago as I post this, according to the article.

Prosecutors may present unaired portions of NBC News' Sandusky interview
June 18, 2012

By Michael Isikoff, NBC News

Pennsylvania prosecutors may seek to use unaired portions of an NBC News interview with Jerry Sandusky in November in which the former Penn State defensive coach said, "I didn't go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I've helped."

The unaired portions of the "Rock Center with Brian Williams" interview-- conducted by NBC Sports host Bob Costas -- could become an issue this week as Sandusky's lawyers start presenting their defense to charges that he repeatedly abused 10 young boys over a 15 year period.

On Friday, a prosecutor from the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office contacted an NBC News lawyer asking the network to re-authenticate a full unedited transcript of the Costas interview. Because the network had already released the transcript, and it had been published on a Pennsylvania news website, the network agreed.
The unaired portions of the Costas interview include an exchange about Sandusky's work with young people. Sandusky founded a charity for troubled kids, called The Second Mile, and, according to prosecutors, he met every one of his alleged victims through the charity.

Jerry Sandusky Defense Ignores Detailed Accusations
June 18, 2012

The withering allegations of sex abuse from eight accusers in the Jerry Sandusky trial were largely ignored today by Sandusky's legal team as the defense began telling their side of the story.

The defense's first day of testimony ended abruptly only an hour into the afternoon session as Judge John Cleland told the jury that "technical issues" with some of the witnesses would keep court adjourned until Tuesday morning. But he laid out a schedule that indicates Sandusky will offer few witnesses on his behalf.

Cleland would not explain what the problems with the witnesses were today, but said only that he expected the defense to rest Wednesday. He said the court would hear a rebuttal from the prosecution on Wednesday afternoon, and told the attorneys to be ready to give closing arguments on Thursday.

The judge informed the jury that they will be sequestered once they begin deliberations.

I've yet to see anything come out in the trial concerning the suggestion  Defense Attorney Karl Rominger made about Jerry Sandusky teaching "basic hygiene skills" to some of the young boys in regard to putting soap on their bodies.  Remember when that came out a while back?  It's also one thing for a group of men or boys to shower together and an altogether different one for a man and a boy to shower together alone, and certainly not with any kind of contact!!  JMHO  How many coaches shower with boys, (students) and bear hug them?

I find this headline misleading.  Yes, they said it was harmless, but what about another question asked?  Like making making bodily contact with a boy in the shower?  Or showering alone with a boy, late at night?

McGettigan seemed surprised by the response and asked Anderson a flurry of follow-ups.

“Eleven-year-olds?” McGettigan said.

Yes, Anderson said.

“That you didn’t know?’

“Yes.”

He said, “I do it all the time,” and added, “There are regularly young boys at the YMCA showering at the same time that there are older people showering.”

Jerry Sandusky trial: To boost 'alternative story,' should he take the stand?
A defense attorney for Jerry Sandusky said his client may testify. In legal circles the move is seen as a risky one, but perhaps necessary, to counter the compelling evidence against him.
June 18, 2012

 ::snipping2::
This week, the defense may put on the stand someone who is expected to provide an “alternative story” that will not dispute the context of the alleged abuse – mutual showering, for example – but who will maintain that none of the encounters led to sexual interaction: Mr. Sandusky himself. In his opening statement last week, defense lawyer Joe Amendola suggested to jurors Sandusky would take the stand.

The decision behind putting Sandusky on the stand is being weighed in legal circles as a risky move, but possibly a necessary one considering the evidence weighed against him and the high number of alleged victims involved. Most defense attorneys avoid putting their client on the stand because it focuses jurors on their credibility, creating vulnerabilities that increase with every next word out of their mouth.

Fallout from the Penn State Scandal

“If the jury does not believe a defendant is telling the truth, they won’t pause to convict,” says Peter Henning, a law professor at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Mich. “What makes [the Sandusky] case different is you had very powerful testimony from eight witnesses. You can try to say maybe they’re all making it up, but once you get to eight witnesses, it’s hard to slough that off. They’re almost in need of throwing a Hail Mary because, in a sense, what else do you have to lose?”
 ::snipping2::
The defense is also expected to rely on testimony from Dr. John O’Brien, a Philadelphia psychiatrist, who will say Sandusky suffers from histrionic personality disorder, which can create a heightened need for attention and an overly sexual or seductive appearance. Dr. O’Brien, who is known in the area for providing expert testimony in many high-profile cases over past years, conducted a two-hour evaluation of Sandusky over the weekend.
The O’Brien testimony will allow prosecutors to solicit counter testimony from other behavioral science experts, who will likely reject the connection between the diagnosis and the behavior alleged in the case.

Dr. Liza Gold, a psychiatrist at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, told ABC News Monday “there is no association” between the disorder “and any type of child sexual abuse of any kind.”
None of the defense’s surrogates for Sandusky are expected to deny that he had close, personal relationships with the victims. But they are expected to maintain that none of the encounters had malicious intent or led to abuse.
