The child sex abuse trial of Jerry Sandusky will resume Wednesday with attention focused on whether the former Penn State defensive coordinator will take the stand.
Wednesday is likely to offer the last opportunity for the defendant to testify, since Judge John Cleland informed the jury Tuesday afternoon that he expects the defense to rest its case by lunchtime.
Sandusky is fully prepped and ready to testify, according to a person with knowledge of the case. Whether he will actually take the stand won't be decided until the final defense witnesses testify Wednesday, the person added.
Sandusky's attorney told reporters Tuesday to "stay tuned" to see if his client will testify in a case that has upended Penn State University and its football program.
"You have to wait," attorney Joe Amendola said just before entering the Pennsylvania courthouse and calling witnesses for a second day.
Sandusky, 68, is on trial on 51 counts related to accusations of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year span. He has denied the charges.FULL STORY
