Sandusky defense begins presenting its case

BELLEFONTE, Penn. -- The defense started presenting their case in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation trial.


The defense called two of Sandusky's fellow coaches and asked how common it was for people to share showers at Penn State.


"The idea to try to persuade someone that what Mr. Sandusky did was right by trying to establish that people shower all the time, I don't think takes you very far," Thomas Kline, a lawyer for one of Sandusky's accusers aid.


The defense plans to present evidence that Sandusky isn't a pedophile but suffers from a personality disorder.


The jury could have the case by the end of the week. The jurors will be sequestered during deliberations.


The former Penn State football assistant is charged with more than 50 counts of abuse against ten boys.
