In the child sex abuse trial of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, both the prosecution and defense face significant hurdles, legal experts say. "The challenge for prosecutors is to unleash (the alleged victims’) pain so that the jury can feel what they experienced," said Barbara Ashcroft, a Temple Beasley School of Law professor, adding that it was important for the alleged victims not to appear rehearsed or prepped when they testify.
