(Newser) – Jerry Sandusky will likely face six of his accusers at an open hearing Dec. 13, their first public confrontation with the former Penn State coach. Despite claims from Sandusky's defense team that some would recant their allegations, an attorney for "Victim One" tells Fox News that all six of the alleged victims who have been identified are expected to testify. Two other victims remain unidentified.

"Victim One," who initiated the investigation in 2008 and is now 18, is being prepared for the hearing, his attorney says. But Sandusky's attorney downplayed the testimony, telling Fox News, "We believe there's a significant possibility at least one and perhaps two of the alleged victims may testify no sexual contact occurred between them and Jerry Sandusky." Sandusky could still waive his right to an open hearing, the Wall Street Journal notes. (Read more Jerry Sandusky stories.)
