Jerry Sandusky And Adopted Son Testify

Jerry Sandusky And Adopted Son Testify - Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky arrives at his child-sex-abuse trial at the Centre County Courthouse for closing arguments. The threat of the adopted son of Jerry Sandusky possibly delivering potentially damaging testimony may have prevented his father from taking the stand in his own defense against charges of child-sex abuse, sources tell NBC News.

In a report on the Today Show Thursday morning, Michael Isikoff reported that Matt Sandusky, one of six of Jerry and Dottie Sandusky’s adopted children, was caught by an NBC camera entering the Centre County courthouse Wednesday as rumors swirled that Jerry Sandusky was going to take the stand to explain the so-called love letters and the Bob Costas’ interview on Rock Center With Brian Williams.

With Matt Sandusky, 33, in the courthouse, Jerry Sandusky, lawyers and Judge John Cleland went into judge’s chambers. They emerged about 30 minutes later with Jerry Sandusky appearing more somber. At that time Sandusky’s lawyer put to rest any rumors of his client testifying by saying, “the defense rests.”
