Sandusky attorney says 'stay tuned' to find out if former Penn St. assistant will take stand
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) ' Jerry Sandusky's attorney says everyone should "stay tuned" to find out if the former Penn State assistant coach will take the stand in his high-profile child sex abuse trial.
Defense attorney Joe Amendola declined to say if Sandusky would testify as he entered the courthouse Tuesday morning.
Amendola says the case is like a soap opera, comparing it to "General Hospital" and "All My Children."
Sandusky is charged with 51 criminal counts for alleged sexual assaults on 10 boys over a 15-year span.
The defense began presenting its case Monday after prosecutors called 21 witnesses, including eight alleged accusers. Besides Sandusky, possible witnesses include his wife, Dottie, and family members of late Penn State coach Joe Paterno.
Sandusky has denied the allegations.
