I just read this in an article on the Sandusky case, and it's very heartening, encouraging, appropriate:

"The impact of hearing so much highly charged, sexually oriented testimony in such a short time seems to have grabbed this jury by the throat. Normally, a jury group relaxes with each other after a couple of days. There are smiles, idle chit chat, and small courtesies evident as they enter and depart the courtroom. But these 12 jurors and four alternates appear different—engaged in the process to be sure, but decidedly solemn in their duty. There are no smiles, and they rarely take their eyes off the witness box to look over at the defendant."

It's in an article by a Diane Dimond. I don't recommend reading the article. She was writing about Thursday, Day 4.

At this point I can't imagine what the defense can do to save their client--discredit all 8 complaining witnesses? And showing Jerry is a "nice guy" isn't relevant to child-sex charges.

From what I've read, they're planning on putting up a psychologist or psychiatrist to say Sandusky has a "histrionic personality" "disorder" that causes him to crave attention and thus his soliticious behavior with the boys - the tickets, the gear, et cetera.

I think this is going to fail, big time. His goose is cooked. He doesn't seem aware of this, because he arrives each morning smiling. I watch the vids on one of the local pages. Pennlive.com or something.

As I recall, the "histrionic personality" excuse wasn't mentioned in the news stories until after the "love" letters showed up. I don't see how this defense can do anything but backfire, big time: bring in an expert psychologist to harp about your client's weird compulsions, and the jurors will conclude... what?

LOLOLO

Well, if you heard the Sandusky interviews he gave to Costas and whomever, he is definitely optimistic about the impression he gives to people. (:^O)

Histrionic personality???? eek

It looks like he has a sociopathic personality with a lot of hysterical and narcissistic elements.

And he has a lawyer spouting a lot of double-edged remarks:

>> "Jerry, in my opinion, loves kids so much that he does things none of us would ever do," Amendola said at the start of trial. << [centredaily.com]

that sounds strangely like some of the remarks made by Michael Jackson's defense! i doubt they want to be associated with that case...
