BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - The first defense witness in Jerry Sandusky's child sex-abuse trial says he and other Penn State coaches were present in team showers when the longtime assistant brought young boys into them.

Former assistant coach Dick Anderson said Monday that he never saw anything inappropriate when Sandusky brought boys into locker room showers.

Anderson says it's also not unusual for him to shower with boys at the YMCA, either.

He also testified about the busy schedule Penn State coaches kept.

Prosecutors rested Monday morning after the mother of one of the alleged victims testified that her son's underwear would frequently be missing from his laundry. Her son had told jurors Sandusky's abuse caused him to bleed.

One of the 52 counts against Sandusky was also dropped by prosecutors.
