BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Jerry Sandusky's attorney says everyone should "stay tuned" to find out if the former Penn State assistant coach will take the stand in his high-profile child sex abuse trial.
Defense attorney Joe Amendola declined to say if Sandusky would testify as he entered the courthouse Tuesday morning.
Amendola says the case is like a soap opera, comparing it to "General Hospital" and "All My Children."
Sandusky is charged with 51 criminal counts for alleged sexual assaults on 10 boys over a 15-year span.
The defense began presenting its case Monday. Character witnesses defended his reputation, including a former Penn State coach who said he knew Sandusky took boys into showers but never saw him do anything wrong. Besides Sandusky, possible witnesses include his wife, Dottie, and family members of late Penn State coach Joe Paterno.
The prosecution called 21 witnesses, including eight alleged accusers.
Sandusky has denied the allegations.
