Defense in Jerry Sandusky trial to begin

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- The defense in the Jerry Sandusky case is expected to start Monday.

For four days, jurors heard prosecutors trying to prove that Sandusky is a serial predator.

Sandusky's strategy is expected to attack the timeline of the repeated sexual alleged assaults by pointing out conflicts with Sandusky’s schedule. 

Sandusky's wife, Dottie, appeared briefly in court the first day but has stayed away the rest of the time, indicating she's expected to take the stand to defend her husband.

“What is his wife going to say in his defense unless she was in the shower with him and the various young boys?” said Criminal Defense Attorney Ron Kuby. “Which obviously she wasn't. She has as far as I can see, nothing to offer this case outside of some sort of plea for sympathy.”

Sandusky could be examined by a prosecution psychologist. The exam comes after the defense introduced testimony on whether Sandusky suffers from a disorder.
