BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jurors in Jerry Sandusky's sex abuse trial are still deliberating.
A court official says the jurors were still talking about the case against the former Penn State assistant football coach Friday night, nearly 12 hours after they reported for duty.
The panel had also deliberated for more than eight hours Thursday.
Sandusky is accused of sexual abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period. He denies the allegations.
Sandusky's lawyer Joe Amendola says he would be shocked and "die of a heart attack" if his client were acquitted on all counts.
The comments came during a 15-minute interview with reporters.
The interview ended with him being summoned into the chambers of Judge John Cleland, who's presided over the two-week trial. Cleland has issued a gag order barring lawyers from discussing the case.
