Sandusky gets psychiatric exam as defense set to begin today – Susan Candiotti reports

Prosecutors are expected to rest their case this morning in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse trial, and the defense will begin presenting its side of the story. The former Penn State football coach faces more than 50 criminal counts and jurors already hearing stories of unthinkable abuse from eight of his alleged victims.

Over the weekend, Sandusky is believed to have undergone a psychological exam by a prosecution expert, ordered by the court to rebut an unusual part of the defense strategy.

This morning on "Early Start," Susan Candiotti shares more on why Jerry Sandusky would get a psychiatric exam at this point in the trial, and previews the defense's arguments.
