One Last Witness for the Prosecution

Sandusky120618_mother
The Commonwealth called one more witness before resting its case against Jerry Sandusky.  Sandusky120618_weeps
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
