Sandusky Trial: A Look Back at the Prosecution and at the Defense's Task Ahead
by Laura Nichols on June 17, 2012 6:13 PM

erry Sandusky's defense team is poised to open its case Monday.

Defending Sandusky is a task his lawyer, Joe Amendola, compared to climbing Mount Everest.

Sandusky faces 52 counts in a child sexual abuse case and maintains his innocence.

Meanwhile, eight of his alleged victims testified in front of the court and their abuser last week. Prosecutors trotted out its star witnesses and recorded and written evidence to present its case to the jury.

Here's a look back at some of the biggest moments of last week:

The defense is hoping to prove Sandusky's actions with his accusers were not sexual in nature.

 How the hell could the defense even come up with that.

Jerry Sandusky Trial Judge Had Doubts About the Case

By COLLEEN CURRY and BETH LOYD
BELLEFONTE, Pa. June 18, 2012

The judge overseeing the sex abuse trial of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky said today that he had doubts about the strength of the prosecution's case, but at this point in the trial is convinced that there is enough credible evidence that the charges should go to a jury.

Judge John Cleland's statements of doubt about the state's case contrasted with his consistent dismissal of motions by the defense to have charges dropped against Sandusky. Since Sandusky's arrest in November, his defense attorney Joseph Amendola has repeatedly complained to Cleland that the charges against his client were too broad and too vague to be defended in court. Cleland dismissed Amendola's complaints repeatedly, but said today even he wondered whether the alleged charges were too vague.

"I've been concerned about this since the beginning," Cleland said. "There were very broad representations made by the Commonwealth on the bill of particulars. Since then, the Commonwealth has submitted an amended bill of particulars, and amended their information, which I believe now meets the standards of due process. Although early on I certainly was not persuaded that that was the case."

Sandusky, 68, is charged with 52 counts of molesting 10 boys. He could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted of the charges.

Cleland's statements followed a morning of legal wrangling over whether some of the counts of sex abuse against Sandusky should be tossed today, as the prosecution wraps up its case. The prosecution is expected to rest following one additional witness, who will take the stand at 10 a.m.

Sandusky's lawyers argued that the charges against him were too broad and vague because they lacked specific dates and locations, and gave Sandusky no shot at a good defense because he could not use alibis to prove that he was somewhere else.

Defense lawyer Karl Rominger said that the counts of indecent assault from the man known as Victim 2, whom assistant coach Mike McQueary allegedly saw in the shower with Sandusky, should be dimissed because McQueary did not actually see a sexual act taking place, and there was no direct evidence that a sexual act occurred. The victim in that alleged assault has never been identified.

Cleland sided with the prosecution, however, saying that the jury could decide if McQueary's account was strong enough to prove a crime was committed.

The defense also asked for the counts stemming from Victim 6 to be dismissed on the grounds that the man testified he "blacked out" and did not remember parts of a shower with Sandusky, and therefore could not credibly allege that a crime was committed. Cleland said again that the jury should decide.

The prosecution, however, did withdraw one of the 52 charges against Sandusky, a third degree felony of endangering the welfare of children.

Sandusky is scheduled to begin his defense later today and his star defense witness is likely to be his wife Dottie who is expected to say she never saw or heard anything suspicious in her husband's behavior.

The defense is also expected to call on an expert witness to testify that Sandusky is diagnosed with histrionic personality disorder, a condition which they say makes him overly affectionate.

Joseph Amendola, the defense attorney who suggested in opening arguments that Sandusky might take the stand to defend himself, will likely ask Dottie Sandusky to take the stand to testify she never suspected her husband of doing anything improper with the young boys he mentored.

Jerry Sandusky trial: Mom of alleged victim says son's underwear was often missing
By SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News
Published: Monday, June 18, 2012, 12:02 PM     Updated: Monday, June 18, 2012, 12:27 PM

BELLEFONTE -- Alleged Victim 9’s mom took the stand this morning as the final prosecution witness in the child sex abuse case against Jerry Sandusky, sobbing as she said she felt responsible for pushing her son to hang out with him even after he started resisting.

She thought her son, who testified Thursday that he was raped by Sandusky during weekend sleepovers in Sandusky’s basement, could benefit from visits with Sandusky since she worked two jobs.

“He gave him clothes, he gave him gifts,” she said. “I wish he would have gave him underwear to replace the underwear that I could never find in my laundry.”
The mother called a school assistant principal in November, asking for advice, when Sandusky was charged with molesting eight other boys.

The school official called police, who then approached her son.

Her testimony might clear up a discrepancy in timelines that Amendola brought up on cross-examination of Victim 9. The timeline of abuse he alleges overlaps with the timeline of abuse alleged by Victim 1, and both said they spent weekend at the Sandusky home alone.

The mom said the visits were two or three weekends a month, and stopped after football season ended in the fall.

She said one night her son called her late to pick him up at Sandusky’s home. She arrived and he was waiting outside without shoes, she said.

She never asked -- even to this day -- what exactly happened to the now-18-year-old.

“I just can’t imagine,” she said. “It’s not that I didn’t want to hear; it’s just that I thought that it would be tough for him to tell me.”

She had noticed a change in her son’s behavior, she testified. “He had a lot of stomach problems. He was sick a lot. He had behavior issues. Sleep patterns were very different. His school work was very difficult.”

Anderson, under cross-examination by prosecutor Joe McGettigan, said he has taken showers with boys at Penn State and the YMCA. The admission appeared to stun McGettigan, who asked if Anderson had ever hugged the kids. 

  

Has this guy taken one to many licks to the head?  He's just opened himself up to claims of abuse by the boys he showered with.  Is it any wonder the pros was stunned.
