UPDATE: Defense attorneys for Jerry Sandusky called 5 people to the stand Wednesday morning. One, a Lancaster man, who says he knew Sandusky through The Second Mile charity. He testified that investigators tried to push him into saying the former Penn State assistant football coach molested him. The man says nothing inappropriate happened with Sandusky.
Another witness says he spoke to Mike McQueary the night he reportedly witnessed something inappropriate between Sandusky and a boy in the locker room showers at Penn State. The witness says McQueary told him he heard something unusual but did not see anything.
A reporter for a Harrisburg newspaper confirmed a statement that said she got contact information for the family of Victim One from an investigator.
Other witnesses Wednesday morning testifed about Sandusky's character as a role model.
Still no word on whether Sandusky himself will take the stand.
Juror number 6 called in sick and was replaced by an alternate.
Dottie Sandusky took the stand in her husband's defense Tuesday, saying she never witnessed anything inappropriate between Jerry Sandusky and his eight accusers.
She told the jury many of the alleged victims stayed at their home several times, but she could not recall when or for how long. When they stayed over, she testified they had the option to sleep where they wanted to.
She also had some choice words about some of his accusers. When asked about Victim 4, Sandusky said, "He was very demanding. He was very conniving. He wanted his way. He didn't listen a lot." Of Victim 9, she said, "He was a charmer. He knew what to say, when to say it."
When asked why any of the witnesses would lie, she replied, "I don't know what it would be for."
Also Tuesday, two state troopers were called to the stand. The defense played a tape from one of their first interviews with Victim 4 in an attempt to show the officers tried to influence him.
A psychiatrist who examined Sandusky on Sunday denied the defense's claim he suffers from histrionic personality disorder. The defense had hoped to use that claim to rationalize the love letters Sandusky had written to some of his accusers.
