SIDEWALKING: Stand By Your Man

CNN: The defense team for Jerry Sandusky, accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, rested on Wednesday without the former coach taking the stand. Defense attorney Joe Amendola had told reporters earlier to “stay tuned” to see if the former Penn State defensive coordinator would testify. It was thought his testimony could provide the opening that prosecutors needed to introduce new evidence against the former coach. In a segment that wasn’t included in NBC’s November 2011 broadcast of an interview with Sandusky, he told Bob Costas that he “didn’t go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that I’ve helped.” There are likely “many young people who would come forward and say that my methods and what I had done for them made a very positive impact on their life,” the ex-coach told Costas in the segment, which court observers thought prosecutors might want to introduce as new evidence in the case.
