WJACTV.COM :: Prosecution Wraps Up its Case and Withdraws One Charge
BELLEFONTE – Prosecutors in the Jerry Sandusky’s child sexual abuse trial wrapped up its case around 11 a.m. Monday, paving the way for the former Penn State University coach’s defense team to start presenting its case and putting its own witnesses on the stand.
According to 6 News’ Gary Sinderson, who is in the courtroom, Sandusky attorney Karl Rominger again asked the judge on Monday to dismiss a host of charges, calling the charges unspecific and arguing that the charges were too vague.
Rominger argued that the person referred to in court documents as Victim No. 2, who was a boy allegedly sexually assaulted in a shower, should be “indecent assault” at best. He then ask the judge to dismiss accusers No. 2, 6 and 8 in total.
The 68-year-old Sandusky has denied allegations of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, and his attorney has suggested the accusers have financial motives.
