Prosecutors close to resting their case in Sandusky child sex abuse trial

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- After four days of testimony, the prosecutors in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial are close to resting their case.

This week, eight accusers took the stand and described their physical encounters with the former Penn State coach, in detail.

One of the alleged victims, now 25-year-old, testified on Thursday about a 1998 locker room shower encounter with Sandusky.

"He has memories that he's blocked out, that when beyond what happened when he was lifted up in the shower. And Sandusky, according to his testimony, has him lifted up, and then he has no memory of what transpired," said Howard Janey, Attorney for Victim #6.

The alleged encounter launched the first criminal investigation against Sandusky, but no charges were filed.

On Thursday, an investigator on the case told the jury that the decision not to bring charges against Sandusky was a mistake.
