Testimony nears end in Sandusky’s abuse trial

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jerry Sandusky had an inspiring reputation for helping youth, and boasted such a soft spot for children that he invited them to Penn State football games and spend the night at his home, witnesses for the retired coach have testified at his child molestation trial.

On Wednesday, Sandusky might finally tell his side of the story in court.

The judge in the case has said Sandusky’s defense team is close to wrapping up. He’s aiming to have closing statements Thursday, with deliberations beginning that afternoon.

So far, defense attorneys have called on a parade of character witnesses and tried to discredit police investigators.

Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, took the witness stand Tuesday, defending him against charges he sexually abused boys in their home and on Penn State’s campus, allegations he’s denied.
