Sandusky Sex Abuse Trial Begins

Controversy is sure to return to Happy Valley as former Nittany Lions football coach Jerry Sandusky goes on trial Monday on 52 charges of sexual abuse. The criminal assault charges involve 10 boys and span 15 years. “There really is no physical evidence,” law professor Wes Oliver told reporters. “It’s entirely a question of he said, he said. But there are a whole lot of ‘he’s.’” Opening arguments will commence Monday morning, and Sandusky’s attorney Joe Amendola said that it’s a battle the former Penn State hero has to win. “There will be no plea negotiations,” Amendola told reporters. “This is a fight to the death. This is the fight of Jerry Sandusky’s life.”
