Jerry Sandusky's adopted son ready to testify against him
Bellefonte — Matt Sandusky, Jerry Sandusky’s adopted son, was prepared to testify against his father Wednesday, according to NBC’s “Today Show” this morning.
Citing unnamed sources “close to the case,” NBC said prosecutors warned Jerry Sandusky’s defense team that if the defendant took the stand, prosecutors would call Matt Sandusky as a rebuttal witness. According to the sources, Matt Sandusky contacted prosecutors after the trial began with “damaging testimony” about his father’s behavior.
Jerry Sandusky did not testify, and Matt Sandusky left the courthouse accompanied by state troopers.
NBC said a “source close to the defense” maintained that there was not a single factor that led to Jerry Sandusky’s not testifying.
Sandusky faces 48 counts of child sexual abuse after three counts were dropped this morning. The jury is hearing closing arguments today, and is expected to begin deliberations this afternoon.
