The defense in the JERRY SANDUSKY sexual molestation trial has rested its case without ever calling the alleged perv to the stand. See JOHN EDWARDS, CASEY ANTHONY, OJ SIMPSON trials. Will he WALK?!

The defense in the bombshell trial of the former Penn State coach accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, rested on Wednesday without Sandusky testifying.

It’s not uncommon for the accused to take the stand citing the Fifth Amendment privilege as in the cases of John Edwards, Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson.

But while they seemed to get “away with it” legal insiders are inclined not so in Sandusky’s case.

He is charged with 51 counts related to child sexual abuse.

The prosecution said it had no further rebuttal witnesses after the defense rested.

Closing arguments begin 9 a.m. Thursday.
