Jurors will return today to deliberate in the child sex abuse trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The jury talked about the case for more than eight hours Thursday before ending deliberations at about 9:30PM. Earlier in the evening, the jurors asked to rehear testimony from two witnesses. They want to listen again to the testimony of Mike McQueary, a onetime Penn State graduate assistant who reported seeing Sandusky assault a boy in a shower.
They also want to rehear the testimony of Dr. Jonathan Dranov, who testified that McQueary gave him a different account of what he saw. They'll rehear the testimony Friday. Sandusky is accused of sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period, allegations he's denied. Sandusky's Son Matt Says His Father Abused Him
A lawyer for a son of Jerry Sandusky says the man has told authorities the former Penn State assistant football coach abused him.
Matt Sandusky is one of Jerry Sandusky's six adopted children.
His lawyer issued a statement Thursday naming Matt Sandusky and saying that the 33-year-old had been prepared to testify on behalf of prosecutors at his father's sex abuse trial. The statement says Matt Sandusky is "a victim of Jerry Sandusky's abuse," but doesn't go into specifics.
The statement came after jurors began deliberating 48 charges against the ex-coach. Prosecutors say Sandusky met the 10 sex-abuse victims through his charity. Lawyers for Matt Sandusky and prosecutors did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Karl Rominger, one of Jerry Sandusky's lawyers, did not comment.
Matt Sandusky's lawyer says his client met with investigators earlier this week.
Sandusky Plaintiff Steps Out Amid Deliberations
A man with a civil lawsuit pending against Jerry Sandusky is speaking out.
Travis Weaver charges in his lawsuit that the former Penn State assistant football coach sexually assaulted him more than 100 times from 1992 to 1996, starting at age 10. He says he was abused on campus, at Sandusky's home and on a trip to the Rose Bowl in California.
Weaver is named as John Doe in his civil suit, but his lawyer, Jeff Anderson, says he is ready to disclose his name. The 30-year-old Weaver is a former participant in Sandusky's children's charity, the Second Mile. He appeared last night on NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams."
Anderson said Weaver came forward with the complaint after Sandusky was charged.
