As the second week of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial gets underway the focus will eb turning to defense witnesses.
The former Penn State assistant football coach may be one of those called to the stand.
At the start of the trial, Sandusky's lawyer suggested in opening statements that his client might testify.
Week one of the high profile trial featured 20 prosecution witnesses, including eight alleged victims, who testified.
The defense has sought to show how the stories of accusers have changed over time, that they were prodded and coached by investigators and prosecutors, that some are motivated to lie by the hopes of a civil lawsuit jackpot, and to paint Sandusky's interactions with children as misunderstood and part of a lifelong effort to help them, not victimize them.
On Friday, the Sandusky defense team won an effort to argue that letters and other alleged grooming by Sandusky were not an attempt to manipulate the boys so that he could molest them, but rather evidence of "histrionic personality disorder" on Sandusky's part.
