The trial of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky got underway today as the first witness took the stand and gave graphic testimony alleging years of sexual abuse at the disgraced coach's hands.
"Victim No. 4" told the court how things escalated once he began showering with Sandusky as a 13-year-old in 1997, which eventually led to forced touching and oral sex. He also detailed the "love letters" that Sandusky sent him and said that Sandusky treated him "like his girlfriend."
Sandusky's lawyer hinted after the trial today that the former coach may take the stand in his own defense. Erin Burnett and legal contributor Paul Callan discuss the case that is now riveting the nation.
