BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- The judge overseeing Jerry Sandusky's trial says it's likely that defense lawyers will rest by Wednesday and that jurors could be deliberating the 51 child sex abuse charges against the former Penn State assistant football coach a day later.
Judge John Cleland told jurors of the tentative timeline after Sandusky's legal team called three witnesses Wednesday.
All three say he was an admired local figure because of his ties to Penn State and the outreach of his charity, The Second Mile. Afterward, court was recessed for the day to deal with what Cleland called a "technical issue" involving other witnesses.
After the proceedings ended for the day, when asked if he would testify, Sandusky looked a reporter in the eye and said nothing. Cleland also tells jurors they will be sequestered for deliberations.
