Afternoon Cut Short by Technical Issues
The afternoon of day five got started with an assortment of short testimonies from various people who have interacted with Jerry Sandusky over the last couple decades.
Dr. Linda Caldwell, the director of the Community Links Golf for L.I.F.E. Mentor Program, was the first witness called to testify after an extended lunch recess. She answered questions for only a couple minutes regarding a document presented to the court last week in which Sandusky drew up a contract with an alleged victim, saying that it was “not out of the ordinary.”
David Pasquinelli, a former Second Mile consultant, says that he knew Sandusky “casually” and went on fundraising trips with him. “I saw a lot of goofing around with the kids,” Pasquinelli said.
Brett Whitmore was the last witness to testify, who interacted with Victim 4 at an after school program. “Jerry certainly seemed to be an important part of [Victim 4’s] life,” Whitmore said.
Following those three very brief testimonies, Judge Cleland said that the afternoon session would be cut short due to “technical issues” with upcoming witnesses. He also said that he expects the defense to rest by noon on Wednesday, which is sooner than most people expected.
Court is back in session tomorrow at 9 a.m.
