Sandusky Trial's Second Week Turns To Defense Case

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - The defense is about to take center stage in Jerry Sandusky's child sexual abuse trial, and that could include the defendant himself taking the stand.
    
Prosecutors could rest their case sometime today, and Sandusky's lawyers have signaled they will put on a case of their own.
    
Sandusky's lawyer suggested to jurors that he may testify, but that's a risk that defense lawyers are normally reluctant to take.
    
Another potential witness is Sandusky's wife Dottie, who's been sequestered since the trial began a week ago.
    
The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach is charged with the sexual abuse of 10 boys over 15 years, allegations he denies. He faces 52 counts.
    
Jurors have already heard from 20 prosecution witnesses, including eight young men who say he sexually abused them as children.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
