ODDS AND ENDS: A small group of family and friends has been sitting near Sandusky during the trial this week save for one key figure, his wife, Dottie Sandusky. Her absence has been noted, but it's not a sign of her sentiment toward her husband or an attempt to avoid the testimony that has taken place. She's not allowed to be in the court. Judge John Cleland asked that those who will testify to be sequestered from the courtroom, and she's on the defense team's witness list and could be called next week.
WHAT'S NEXT: A three-day weekend. The court has recessed, but prosecutors have not rested their case, which means they could still call more witnesses on Monday. Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola said "I think we'll start Monday," signaling that if the prosecution rests at the start of next week, the judge is not likely to delay the next phase of the trial.
