BELLEFONTE, Pa. - The evidence was clearly stacked against Jerry Sandusky.
During his two-week sex-abuse trial, prosecutors bombarded the jury with sometimes tearful testimony of eight victims, a witness who painted a graphic tableau of a rape in a shower, and "creepy love letters" Sandusky is said to have written to a boy.
If that weren't enough, Sandusky's adopted son Matt approached prosecutors during the trial and offered to testify. Prosecutors held back the bombshell from the jury, planning to offer him as a rebuttal witness, which ultimately forced the not to put the 68-year-old former Penn State football coach on the stand.
But was the case, which ended Friday with the jury finding Sandusky guilty on 45 counts, indefensible?
