Sandusky won't testify at trial

BELLAFONTE, Penn. -- The defense for Jerry Sandusky  rested its case after without hearing from the defendant.

The former Penn State assistant coach wanted to take the stand but was overruled by his team of lawyers.

A lawyer for one of the alleged victim's believes that the prosecution's case has been strong. The accused child molester and former coach had nothing to lose by testifying.

"I think the defendant is on his own one yard line. So that would indicated he would take the stand," Thomas Kline, an attorney for alleged victim five, said.

The jury will get the case on Thursday and will be sequestered while they deliberate.
