Prosecution wraps up after bringing 8 accusers to stand

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Jurors in Jerry Sandusky's case are getting a three-day weekend after being told the trial won't resume until next week.

Prosecutors on Thursday finished calling to the stand eight young men who've claimed the former Penn State assistant coach sexually abused them in a variety of ways when they were children. There are also two alleged victims who haven't been identified.

Sandusky's trial on 52 criminal counts is moving more quickly than many observers have expected.

His lawyers could begin to put on their own witnesses as early as Monday.

The most recent testimony included a young man who says the 68-year-old Sandusky raped him as a teen guest in Sandusky's basement, where his muffled cries went unanswered.
