Jerry Sandusky Trial

After seven days of testimonies, jurors in the child sexual abuse case are now deliberating. Prosecutors described Sandusky as a molester who groomed his victims while his defense lawyer said he was victimized by his accusers. Sandusky chose not to testify.

Former assistant Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was called a “serial predatory pedophile” by Senior Deputy Attorney General Joseph McGettigan III. He said Sandusky used gifts and pageantry to lure and abuse boys from troubled homes.

“What you should do is come out and say to the defendant that he molested and abused and give them back their souls,” pleaded McGettigan to the jurors, according to an ABC News report. “I give them to you. Acknowledge and give them justice.”

“Find him guilty of everything,” he said.

Defense said Sandusky, 68, was a victim of accusations, that investigators had made false claims about a generous man whose charity gave them much-needed love.

“They went after him, and I submit to you they were going to get him hell or high water, even if they had to coach witnesses,” said his lawyer Joseph Amendola.

If convicted, Sandusky could spend the rest of his life in state prison. He is charged with 48 counts related to 10 boys over 15 years. The jury includes nine people with ties to Penn State University.
