Expert to explain Sandusky's personality disorder: Paul Callan says 'expect to see a demonstration'

A win for Jerry Sandusky's defense team.  The judge Friday ruled that he's allowing testimony about a psychiatric condition the defense says explains Sandusky's behavior, including writing "love letters" to his accusers.

Will Jerry Sandusky take the stand?

Defense Attorney Paul Callan comes OutFront.

Sandusky defense expected to begin calling witnesses Monday

Prosecutors in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial are expected to rest their case when the trial resumes Monday.

Judge John Cleland had indicated he expected the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to conclude its case Thursday after its final witness testified, but that didn't happen.

Cleland adjourned the trial to Monday, when prosecutors are expected to take care of some routine evidentiary matters and then officially rest. Sandusky's attorneys will then mount their defense of the former Penn State football team's defensive coordinator.

Sandusky faces 52 counts tied to what prosecutors say was his systematic abuse of at least 10 boys over a span of 15 years. Now 68, Sandusky has been under house arrest in the days leading up to his trial. He has pleaded not guilty and has maintained his contact with children was not sexual.

    Keeping the story alive, does not bring Trayvon Martin back alive. Zimmerman would not be here, in this state of affairs, if he were just minding his own business. The story should be on the forefront because what he did is a lesson to other vigilantes that you cannot just kill someone because you have some perverted since of righteousness to be a super hero.
