Sandusky jury deliberates as adopted son alleges abuse – Sara Ganim on why jurors never heard the admission

Bellefonte, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Jerry Sandusky's writings in a 2000 memoir about the difficult relationship with his adopted son, Matt, are similar to several letters he wrote to a boy now known as alleged victim No. 4.

Matt Sandusky, now 33, came forward this week as his father's child-sex trial drew to a close to say he, too, had been molested by Jerry Sandusky and was willing to testify. The jury enters their second day of deliberations today, where they will review the letters Jerry Sandusky wrote, and may well hold the key to some of the most serious charges against him.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN contributor Sara Ganim on why jurors won't ever hear Matt Sandusky's admission.
