Accused former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky may take the stand in his own defense to counter charges the he sexually abused 10 boys over a 15 year period, his lawyer hinted during his opening statement today. Sandusky's defense team also filed a motion to allow evidence that he has histrionic personality disorder, a condition that would explain some of his behavior as well as letters he wrote to his alleged victims. The disorder, his lawyer claimed in a court document, will show that his actions were not attempts to "groom" young boys for sexual seduction, as the prosecution has claimed.
