The witness, the mother of “Victim #9″, became visibly upset as she told the court how she regretted encouraging her son to spend time with Sandusky unaware of what was happening.

The defense started off by calling two former Penn State assistant coaches, who testified that showering with young boys was a commonplace.Sandusky120618_Anderson
Although neither coach, according to their testimony, engaged in the kind of horseplay and bearhugs attributed to Sandusky. Sandusky120618_Brooks

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
