The first person to testify was Doctor James Martin, who played for Penn State wrestling and became good friends with Jerry Sandusky in the 1990's. Martin showed a photo album with pictures of his family and letters from the Sandusky family. The letters said things like, "Thanks for brightening our life." Joe Amendola wanted to show that Sandusky sent letters of affection to many people.
The second person was Elaine Steinbauch, who currently lives in North Carolina. She used to work at the Second Mile in Chester County. She said she knew Accuser #4 in the summer of 2009 and that Accuser #4, his girlfriend and their baby came over to the Sandusky residence. Steinbauch said that Accuser #4 and Sandusky had a mutual admiration. She said she text with Dottie Sandusky just about every other day during the scandal, up until the trial started.
Next to take the stand was the mother of Accuser #1. She denies that she ever told a neighbor that Accuser #1's family would get rich off the Jerry Sandusky case. Joe Amendola pressed her on when she got an attorney. She said she hired Michael Boni in 2011.
The neighbor took the stand saying that she did say the family would get a big house and fancy things after getting a payday from the trial. He also said that he heard of an argument between Accuser #1 and his mother. The argument was apparently about Accuser #1 saying that he didn't want to see Sandusky. The mother said she wanted her son to go so she could enjoy her weekend. In the meantime, the neighbor said that when applying for a job, he used the mother as a reference. On the stand, he said that the mother was a bad person and forced Accuser #1 to be with Sandusky so she could get money.
Joe Amendola said he still doesn't know if Jerry or Dottie Sandusky will take the stand. For today, it depends on how long the cross examination is and are still not sure about Wednesday.
