(ABC NEWS) Accused former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky may take the stand in his own defense to counter charges the he sexually abused 10 boys over a 15 year period, his lawyer hinted during his opening statement today.
Defense attorney Joseph Amendola said today in an opening statement that Sandusky, 68, would tell the jury about how his own experiences growing up explained some of his alleged behavior.
"It was routine for people to get in the showers in Jerry's culture. He's going to tell you later, it was routine for individuals to take showers together," Amendola said.
