With former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky scheduled to begin his defense, how can he persuade a jury to discount the onslaught of evidence? According to Edward Ohlbaum, a professor at Temple's Beasley School of Law and a former public defender, no greater dilemma exists for a defense attorney than whether to call a client to the stand. "[Sandusky] sat in that courtroom and listened to the most horrific things someone could say about anyone," Ohlbaum said. "His only chance is to look that jury in the eye and say, 'I would never, ever, ever do something like this.'"
