BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- The trial of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky will put before jurors two dramatically different pictures of the former coach.
The trial is expected to get under way on Tuesday in a central Pennsylvania courtroom. Prosecutors say Sandusky used his access to children to target and groom boys to feed predatory sexual desires.
But Sandusky denies the allegations and is determined to establish his innocence.
The first step will be to choose a jury, which could be a challenge because potential jurors are being chosen from people who live in the State College area. Once that's done, opening statements are expected to begin on June 11.
