Sandusky Defense Opens With Talk of Reputation
June 18, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Dick Anderson, a longtime Penn State assistant and Sandusky friend who retired in January, testified that he and other members of the football staff were present when Sandusky brought young boys into the team's showers.

He said he never witnessed anything inappropriate.

"If Jerry would bring someone in with The Second Mile, they had been working out, for whatever reason they came in, it was not uncommon ... with the other coaches in the shower as well," Anderson said, referring to the charity for at-risk children Sandusky founded in 1977.

Anderson, who coached at Penn State from 1970 to 1983 and again from 1990 to 2011, said adults and children often shower together at gyms. He noted, for example, that it's not unusual for him to be in the showers with boys at the YMCA.

Anderson also spoke in detail about the long hours of coaching and recruiting trips required of the job, which could lay the groundwork for a defense argument that accuser testimony about regular contact with Sandusky may be inaccurate or exaggerated.

Anderson said he did not know Sandusky had been barred by university administrators from taking children onto campus after the 2001 incident was reported by McQueary, although that was disclosed in court documents and has been widely and repeatedly reported since Sandusky's arrest.


When lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan asked him if that fact would surprise him, Anderson said yes.
 ::snipping2::

Tom Kline, a Philadelphia lawyer who represents one of the accusers, said he was served a defense subpoena on Monday, ordering him to produce a copy of the fee agreement he has made with Victim 5, along with copies of his interactions with reporters.

Jerry Sandusky’s Trial, Day 5: Could an Infamous Interview Come Back to Haunt Him?
On the first day of defense testimony, much happens outside the courtroom.
By Nick Carbone
June 18, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Lead defense attorney Joe Amendola has also suggested previously that the accusers and the Attorney General’s office might be colluding. Lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan has often queried the alleged victims while on the stand: “Have I ever, ever, ever told you what to say?” which they’ve answered with resounding denials. But it could be a larger issue for Kline and the other subpoenaed attorneys to defend themselves against a charge of violating the gag order issued by Judge Cleland, which bars any representative from either side from discussing the case with the media.

It’s still up in the air if Jerry Sandusky or even his wife Dottie will take the stand. But with the self-proclaimed fast pace, it’s looking like less of a possibility.

Using personality disorder as part of Sandusky defense might be a stretch, experts say
June 18, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Sandusky’s lawyers are arguing that he suffers from histrionic personality disorder. It’s defined by the American Psychiatric Association’s diagnostic manual as “a pervasive pattern of excessive emotionality and attention seeking” that is “often characterized by inappropriate sexually seductive or provocative behavior” and rapidly shifting emotions.
According to the National Institutes of Health, histrionic personality disorder occurs more often in women than in men.

One expert, however, questions whether it is a separate personality disorder, or just an aspect of broader personality defects.

“It has been removed” from the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, although it may be placed in an appendix for further study, said Dr. Renato Alarcon of the Mayo Clinic. He’s part of the personality disorders working group that reviews changes to the manual, known as the “bible” of mental illness.

Prosecutors say Sandusky sexually abused young men over a period of years. They say he targeted victims at a charity he founded, groomed them for abuse, and then moved from touching and kissing to more severe forms of sexual abuse, including in some cases oral or anal sex. Sandusky has denied all the allegations.

Sandusky’s lawyers, who began presenting their defense Monday, plan to raise the disorder issue to suggest that his extensive correspondence with one of the alleged victims wasn’t necessarily “grooming” boys to molest them but instead might be trying to “satisfy the needs of a psyche” with the disorder.

“The jury should not be misled into believing these statements and actions are likely grooming when they are just as likely or more likely histrionic in origin,” wrote defense attorney Karl Rominger in the June 11 filing.

But Dr. Glen Gabbard, clinical professor of psychiatry at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said histrionic personality disorder could in no way be seen as a reason or explanation for the abuse of children.

“That diagnosis, if he has it, would be completely irrelevant to anything having to do with criminal responsibility for acts of pedophilia,” said Gabbard, an expert on personality disorders.

Sandusky Trial: Legal Expert Says Jerry Sandusky's Testimony Will be 'Make-or-Break Moment'
By Laura Nichols
June 18, 2012 10:45 pm

BELLEFONTE – Jerry Sandusky and his defense team are about to face the moment of truth.

Whether the former Penn State assistant football coach takes the stand on his own behalf very well could determine the outcome of his child sexual abuse case.

"The defendant's decision to testify is a make-or-break moment," said Dave Pedri, a legal expert, attorney and former prosecutor.

Pedri believes that if Sandusky does testify, he will be the last witness on the last day of the defense's case.

"Everything is riding on it,"  Pedri said.

Should Sandusky decide to testify, Pedri said he could "literally be up there for hours while the prosecution pokes holes in (his story). The Bob Costas interview is a huge point – (Sandusky) has effectively already testified without being cross-examined."

Speculation continues to swirl around whether Sandusky will testify on his own behalf. Last week, prosecutors played parts of the interview Sandusky gave with his lawyer, Joe Amendola, on "Rock Center with Brian Williams" and NBC anchor Bob Costas.
 ::snipping2::
Other possible defense witnesses could include Sandusky's wife, Dottie, as well as Jay and Sue Paterno.

Court resumes at 9 a.m. Tuesday after an early recesses Monday. The defense has given no indication of who will be called to the witness stand.

Sandusky, 68, faces 51 counts in a child sex abuse case. He is charged with abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period. He maintains his innocence.

Nope.  Jer just sought out the most vulnerable and easily manipulated with mothers that turned a blind eye to what the nice coach from PS might be doing.

I hope that statement bites him right in the arse.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Coaches' testimony raises the question, should men shower with young boys?
BY SARA GANIM AND MATT KEMENY, The Patriot-News
Published: Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 5:00 AM     Updated: Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 7:39 AM

BELLEFONTE — For decades, they’ve known him as a man everyone wanted to be.

And it appeared from their faces that they can’t quite grasp, and aren’t yet willing to accept, what their friend and colleague Jerry Sandusky has been charged with doing to young boys.
Two former Penn State assistant coaches took the stand in Sandusky’s defense Monday, both saying they find nothing wrong with men showering with young boys.

Booker T. Brooks, a former receivers and tight ends coach who left Penn State to coach at Oregon State, said he takes showers at the YMCA with his young granddaughter.

Richard “Dick” Anderson, a former Nittany Lions offensive line coach, said he would consider sharing a hotel room with a young boy if it was for the child’s emotional benefit.

Their testimony elicited “ahs” from the courtroom gallery. Hushed whispers resonated through the room after the two men acknowledged that they, too, shower with boys, and saw nothing strange about Sandusky doing the same.
 ::snipping2::
A distinction

In testimony Monday, neither of the former football coaches thought it was OK for a man to touch a young boy while naked.

Neither has ever done that in a shower, they said.

Neither had witnessed Sandusky doing that, either, they said.

They both stopped short, when questioned directly and within hypothetical scenarios presented by prosecutor Joe McGettigan, of saying it’s OK for a man to bear-hug, lift or press his body up against a boy while naked.

The distinction is important, because Sandusky has admitted to touching the bare legs of young boys. He has admitted to horsing around in the shower.

 ::snipping2::
McGettigan, on cross-examination of the coaches, also pointed out in his questioning that neither man invited any young boys to shower with them. Their experiences were in groups, not one on one.

Still, they seemed painfully adamant in defending Sandusky’s actions as they know them.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Live coverage of Day 6
Published: Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 8:01 AM     Updated: Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 8:24 AM

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- The state vs. Jerry Sandusky trial continues for a sixth day Tuesday at the Centre County Courthouse. The defense is expected to continue presenting its case.

Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, has been charged with 51 counts -- one was dropped by the prosecution yesterday -- of sexually abusing 10 boys, some of them on the Penn State campus and all of them he met through his Second Mile children's charity. Sandusky says he's innocent.

The case is expected to wrap up this week and could go to the jury Thursday. The jury will be sequestered as it deliberates.

See all of the key developments from Day 5.

Sandusky Trial: Major Headlines Heading into Day 6
By Nate Mink
June 19, 2012

Court ended early Monday because of a technical issue, and then the judge hinted that the defense could wrap up its case Wednesday with jury deliberations starting as early as Thursday.

So, the Jerry Sandusky trial appears to be in the home stretch. With that in mind, Tuesday may bring some star defense witnesses to the stand.
