(CBS News) The defense has rested in the child sex abuse trial of Jerry Sandusky without calling the former Penn State coach to the stand. Jerry Sandusky did not to take the stand after all.
His defense lawyers had hinted he would tell jurors his side of the story, but in the end, they rested without the former Penn State coaching testifying. Closing arguments are now set for Thursday.
On Wednesday, The defense called witnesses in an attempt to discredit Mike McQuery, the former Penn State assistant coach who testified that he saw Sandusky molesting a boy in a campus shower. The first, a family friend of McQueary, who testified the assistant coach was visibly shaken when he told him that he had heard sexual sounds and had seen Jerry Sandusky with a boy, but he says McQuery never actually saw sex, and no one called 9-11.
Another witness testified that McQuery might have participated in a second mile golf tournament 2 years after he witnessed the alleged assault--even though he swore last week that he wanted nothing ever to do with Sandusky again.
Sandusky's wife, Dottie, took the stand Tuesday. The soft spoken 69-year-old told the court she never saw anything suspicious when her husband spent time with young boys in their home.
An 18-year-old accuser testified last week he would scream for help when Sandusky raped him in his basement.
But when Defense attorney Joe Amendola asked her if she ever heard anyone yelling for help? She answered no.
Tuesday was the first time Dottie Sandusky spoke publically about her husband's alleged crimes.
