he defense rested in Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse trial Wednesday. Though an overflow crowd was present in the courtroom in anticipation that the disgraced former Penn State University assistant football coach would testify in his own defense, Sandusky, who is charged with 51 counts of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, was never called to the stand. Closing arguments in the trial are expected Thursday, with jury deliberations beginning afterward. If convicted, Sandusky faces more than 500 years in prison.
