Defense Rests Without Sandusky Taking Stand Closing arguments to begin tomorrow By Kate Seamons, Newser Staff Posted Jun 20, 2012 11:17 AM CDT 7 comments Comments Jerry Sandusky leaves the Centre County Courthouse after the fourth day of his child sex abuse trial on June 14, 2012, in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. (Getty Images) (Newser) – We won't be hearing Jerry Sandusky's side of things from Jerry Sandusky himself. The defense rested today without calling the former Penn State assistant coach to the stand, reports the Patriot News. The prosecution had no rebuttal, which means things will kick off again tomorrow at 9am, at which time closing arguments will be made. ESPN reports that Sandusky wanted to testify, but his attorneys, who felt otherwise, won out.
