Jerry Sandusky Trial: Defense Lawyer Argues Sandusky Is Victim, Marijuana Purchase Alleged

The Jerry Sandusky trial began Monday, and almost immediately became a horrifying account of both Sandusky's alleged serial sexual abuse and the lengths to which the defense will go to defend him.

The latter came when the defense posited that that there will be no victims unless the jury finds Sandusky guilty. The former came in all sorts of ways, notably when the prosecution had an alleged victim of Sandusky's abuse testify that the former Penn State defensive coordinator bought him marijuana.

But that wasn't nearly the worst bit of evidence presented against Sandusky on the first day:

And as for the supposed "love letters" Sandusky sent to one of his victims, they're already part of the trial.

In all, Victim 4 testified for about four hours on Monday before court was adjourned at 4:47 p.m. Eastern.

Proceedings will resume at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
