Sandusky jurors complete first day of deliberations without verdict
BELLEFONTE, Pa. (MCT) — After seven days of sometimes shocking testimony and more than two hours of closing arguments, the jury in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex-abuse trial deliberated his fate for 8 1/2 hours Thursday before retiring for the night without a verdict.
Presumably the jurors did not know that in the midst of the trial, Sandusky’s adopted son, Matt, told prosecutors that the retired Penn State assistant football coach molested him. It’s unclear why the 33-year-old wasn’t called to the witness stand. A gag order prevents attorneys in the case from speaking to reporters.
