Sandusky jury asks to rehear witness testimony


By Associated Press

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — The jurors deliberating child sex abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky have asked to rehear testimony from two witnesses.

The jurors want to listen again to the testimony of Mike McQueary, a onetime Penn State graduate assistant who reported seeing Sandusky assault a boy in a shower. They also want to rehear the testimony of Dr. Jonathan Dranov, who testified that McQueary gave him a different account of what he saw.

The jurors made the request of Judge John Cleland on Thursday evening, more than seven hours after they began their deliberations.

Cleland suggested they might want to adjourn for the evening. They exited the court room to talk about it.

Sandusky is accused of sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period, allegations he's denied.
