Judge Expects Sandusky Jury to Begin Deliberations on Thursday
The judge in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial told jurors they will be sequestered while deliberating and that will likely start later this week.
The judge ended testimony early on the first day the defense started presenting witnesses in the Sandusky trial. Court wrapped up before 2 p.m. after the defense called only about a handful of witnesses.
Those witnesses were mostly character witnesses who testified about Sandusky’s reputation and said he was known as a good guy with a good reputation in the community before these charges were filed.
The judge ended testimony early on Monday and told jurors that was because some technical issues needed to be resolved before the defense could continue with any other witnesses.
There is a lot of speculation as to whether Jerry Sandusky himself will take the stand. The defense hinted to that in opening statements, but it is not clear if that will be happening or not.
The judge said the defense expects to wrap up its case on Wednesday afternoon and then closing arguments would come Thursday morning. The jury would begin deliberating Jerry Sandusky’s fate not long after that.
