Judge: Prosecution’s case against Sandusky could soon wrap
The prosecution in a child rape proceeding against former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky could finish by Friday, the judge said Wednesday.
“Things are moving along quicker than anticipated,” Pennsylvania judge John Cleland said before ending the day’s proceedings.
In an emotion filled courtroom, jurors on Wednesday heard graphic testimony from three alleged victims, the father of a then-graduate assistant who said he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a boy, and a janitor who testified that he saw two pairs of legs in a shower, believed to belong to the ex-coach and a child.
After he saw the legs, Ron Petrosky said another janitor named Jim Calhoun — who suffers from dementia and isn’t able to testify — claims witnessed the boy performing oral sex on Sandusky; testimony that defense attorney Joe Amendola sought to make inadmissible.
The men spoke on the third day of the case against the former assistant football coach, who’s pleaded not guilty to the 52 criminal counts and has denied his interactions with the children were sexual.
