The Jerry Sandusky trial is winding down this week. In a surprise turn of events, it now appears that Sandusky himself is unlikely to take the stand. Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports reported the news on Wednesday morning, via Twitter, citing sources on the scene at the trial.
Sources here don't expect Jerry Sandusky to take the stand. Defense expected to rest soon, they look very relaxed— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) June 20, 2012
Earlier during the trial, it was reported that the defense would call Sandusky to the stand. On Monday, Judge John Cleland laid out a schedule that could see the case handed over to the jury as soon as Thursday.
Dottie Sandusky, Jerry's wife, was on the stand Tuesday defending her husband.
