|Juror: Sandusky Lacked Emotion
|BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- A juror says Jerry Sandusky showed no emotion as the guilty verdict was read at his trial and the juror views that as confirmation that the verdict was the right one.
Juror Joshua Harper says the jury had some disagreements and went back over testimony to reconcile possible inconsistencies. He didn't say which charges led to disagreements.
Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted Friday on 45 of 48 child sex abuse counts.
Harper tells NBC's "Today" that Sandusky was acquitted on one charge related to the boy known as Victim 2 who was attacked in a campus shower because the eyewitness, former grad assistant Mike McQueary, did not see penetration. He says McQueary made it apparent he saw something "that was wrong and extremely sexual."
