Sandusky trial deliberations enter 2nd day

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Jurors spent more than eight hours deliberating on charges Jerry Sandusky sexually abused 10 boys over a 15-year period, as new accusations of abuse were leveled against him by a pair of accusers, including his adopted son.

During closing statements Thursday, defense attorneys said the ex-Penn State assistant football coach was himself the victim of young men seeking a financial payday. Prosecutors accused Sandusky of being a predatory pedophile.

While the jury began grappling with the case, 33-year-old Matt Sandusky said in a statement that he was abused by his adopted father.

Meanwhile, Travis Weaver, a man with a civil lawsuit pending against Jerry Sandusky, told NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams" that Sandusky allegedly abused him over four years starting in 1992, when he was 10.
