(CBS/AP) BELLEFONTE, Pa. - The jurors deliberating child sex abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky have asked to rehear testimony from two witnesses.
The jurors want to listen again to the testimony of Mike McQueary, a onetime Penn State graduate assistant who reported seeing Sandusky assault a boy in a shower. They also want to rehear the testimony of Dr. Jonathan Dranov, who testified that McQueary gave him a different account of what he saw.
The jurors made the request of Judge John Cleland on Thursday evening, more than seven hours after they began their deliberations.
Cleland suggested they might want to adjourn for the evening. They exited the court room to talk about it.
Sandusky is accused of sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period, allegations he's denied.
Meanwhile, lawyers for one of Sandusky's adopted sons said the man has told authorities the former Penn State assistant football coach abused him.
The lawyers issued a statement Thursday naming Matt Sandusky, one of Sandusky's six adopted children, and saying that the 33-year-old had been prepared to testify on behalf of prosecutors at his father's sex abuse trial.
"During the trial, Matt Sandusky contacted us and requested our advice and assistance in arranging a meeting with prosecutors to disclose for the first time in this case that he is a victim of Jerry Sandusky's abuse," Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici wrote in the statement. "At Matt's request, we immediately arranged a meeting between him and the prosecutors and investigators.
"This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy. There will be no further comment."
