    Jerry Sandusky’s alleged victims were given faces on Monday. As trial proceedings against the disgraced former Nittany Lions coach opened in Pennsylvania, prosecutors showed photos of the accusers to the seven women and five men of the jury. Senior Deputy Attorney General Joseph McGettigan III described the activities Sandusky is supposed to have engaged in with the 10 accusers in graphic terms, calling the onetime Penn State hero “a serial predator.” McGettigan said the activities took place “not over days, not over weeks, not even over months, but in some cases over years.” Sandusky faces 52 sexual-abuse charges spanning a period of 15 years.
