BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - The defense in Jerry Sandusky's child sexual abuse case has rested without the former Penn State assistant football coach taking the stand in his own defense.
The defense rested Wednesday after both sides presented seven days of testimony. The jury heard from eight accusers who say Sandusky sexually abused them.
The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach could spend the rest of his life in state prison if convicted. He is fighting 51 criminal counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys.
The court also recessed for the day.
Earlier Wednesday, defense attorneys sought to undercut testimony by former assistant Mike McQueary.
A family friend of McQueary says the one-time graduate assistant spoke to him the night he claimed he saw Sandusky with a boy in a shower. Dr. Jonathan Dranov says McQueary gave him a different description.
