Sandusky Jury Reaches Verdict

Less than two days after deliberations began, the jury in the Jerry Sandusky trial has reached a verdict. It's expected to be read late Friday night, though press personnel in court are restricted from sharing the decision until court is officially adjourned. Sandusky, a former coach at Penn State, faces 48 charges relating to sexual assault against minors. In an unguarded moment on Friday, Sandusky's own attorney acknowledged the long odds of an acquittal: Joe Amendola said he’d be shocked that he’d “die of a heart attack” if his client were to beat all of the charges.
