Prosecution wraps after Day 4 of Sandusky trial

Jerry Sandusky Child Sex Abuse Trial Continues Getty Images

The first three days of the Jerry Sandusky trial brought forth plenty of surprises and twists.

On Day 1, the defense announced Sandusky would be testifying in his own trial; Day 2 brought the surprise testimony of former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary; McQueary’s dad, John, took the stand on Day 3 to corroborate his son’s statements, but that turned out to be disastrous when the elder McQueary “forgot” he testified in the preliminary hearing of two PSU administrators in December.

Day 4 marked the unofficial end to the prosecution’s case. Following the testimony from alleged Victim 9, Judge John Cleland recessed court until Monday. It should be noted that the prosecution did not officially “rest its case” — that could happen tomorrow — but the defense is expected to begin calling witnesses following the three-day break.

The fact that the prosecution wrapped up its case after just four days is quick, as the trial was originally believed to take around three weeks.

    Thank God the state’s case wasn’t being run by the Simpson prosecutors. For the victims’ sake, I pray the defense finishes its case quickly and the jury is able to reach a swift, just verdict.

    I imagine it will move much more smoothly then the Simpson trial, mainly due to the lack of Judge “I want the spotlight” Ito and the fantastical machinations of Cochran(RIP). I’m sure the prosecution is more then ready for J Sandusky to hit the stand, no way they rest after tomorrow, not unless there is self-incrimination.

    This case will not go long due to dragging the school name thru the mudd.IMOthe school will give enough money to make everyone happy.The cost in lawyer fees and court cost and damage to the Penn st name,Jerry will be found guilty and put away in a prison where he will love the showers then everyone will be happy.While in prison Jerry just might take 4 or 5 showers a day and like the pen better then Penn st lol.
