Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has arrived at a Pennsylvania courthouse for the start of his child sex-abuse trial.
Sandusky arrived at the courthouse in Bellefonte on Monday morning along with defense attorney Joe Amendola. He smiled briefly for cameras before walking inside.
A jury of seven women and five men are scheduled to hear opening statements in the case, ending months of pretrial wrangling in the high-profile case that led to the firing of legendary late Penn State coach Joe Paterno. Many of the jurors have strong ties to the university.
