Sandusky trial begins

BELLEFONTE, Penn. -- The trial for former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky is underway.

Sandusky is charged with more than 50 counts of abuse of ten boys over 15 years.

The prosecutors showed childhood pictures of the accusers during opening statements and called Sandusky a "serial pedophile."

The case, however, is not sure win for the prosecutor.

ESPN Legal Analyst Jack Burkman says the prosecution has a tougher case than what people think.

"I think the defense attorneys will tear these ten witnesses apart," Burkman said. "They're going to show to the jury that the witnesses testimony is largely uncorroborated."

Sandusky's attorneys have maintained his innocence.
