Jerry Sandusky Trial: Jury likely to get case by end of the week, judge says
Judge Cleland also told the court that he planned to sequester the jury at a local hotel during deliberations.
Citing "technical reasons" involving a witness, Judge Cleland adjourned court early Monday, after several defense witnesses testified as to Sandusky's character. Retired Penn State football coach Richard Anderson told the court that it is not unusual for coaches to shower with boys - although he admitted that he had never brought a boy into the shower room with him, rather, "they're just there."
Anderson testified that he never saw Sandusky engaged in any inappropriate behavior.
"He had a wonderful reputation in the community. He was well thought of in every regard," Anderson said, according to the Daily Collegian.
The newspaper also reports that David Pasquinelli, a former employee of The Second Mile, the charity Sandusky founded, testified Monday that he "saw a lot of goofing around... Jerry had a unique way. He inspired a lot of us how to get on their level and communicate."
Before resting on Monday morning, the prosecution called a woman whose son - referred to as "Victim 9" - testified last week that he was sodomized by Sandusky in the former coach's basement. During his testimony, the boy was asked if his mother ever saw blood in his underwear, and today she testified that "I always wondered why he never had any underwear in the laundry. I wondered what happened and he told me he had an accident and he threw 'em out."
The mother admitted she "did not want to know" what had happened at the Sandusky house, but that her son had "stomach problems" and "couldn't use the bathroom right," after visits with the former coach.
Sandusky faces 51 counts of child sex abuse against 10 children over 15 years. He maintains his innocence.
Outside the courtroom Monday, Tom Kline, the attorney for one of Sandusky's alleged victims, was subpoenaed by the defense. According to CBS News' Katy Conrad, the defense wants Kline to produce all his communications with the media and his fee agreement between him and his client.
