Judge: Prosecutors could wrap Sandusky case soon


BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — The judge overseeing Jerry Sandusky’s child sex-abuse trial says prosecutors could finish presenting their case Thursday.

Judge John Cleland tells jurors that if that happens he’ll give them an updated trial schedule at the end of the day.

So far, the jurors have heard from seven accusers. One of them testified Thursday that the former Penn State assistant football coach called himself the “tickle monster” while lathering his back and embracing him in an on-campus shower.

Another accuser who is now a member of the Army National Guard described frequent sleepovers at Sandusky’s home that included the ex-coach rubbing his body and touching his penis.

Sandusky’s attorney questioned both men about connections they had with other alleged victims.

The defense has claimed that the accusers have financial motives, but they’ve all denied that.
