As deliberations continue, Sandusky jurors have testimony acted out

    As deliberations in the child abuse trail of Jerry Sandusky stretched into a second day Friday, jurors have reviewed testimony of two key witnesses.

    It was like a read-through of a play, with one of the prosecutors reading for witness Mike McQueary, and then the lead defense attorney reading for another witness, Dr. Jonathan Dranov, who contradicted some of McQueary’s testimony.

    The testimony concerns allegations Sandusky assaulted a boy, dubbed “Victim Two,” in the Penn State locker room showers.

    The read-through took about an hour and a half.

    The judge cautioned jurors these types of requests shouldn’t become a habit.

    “As a practical matter,” he said, “we can’t go back and essentially re-do the trial.”

    He instructed jurors to try to rely on their memory going forward.
