People in Bellefonte, Pa., lined up outside of the Centre County courthouse as early as 3:30 a.m. today to get one of the extra folding chairs that have been set up in the back of the court in hopes that former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky will take the stand on the final day of testimony in his child sex abuse trial.

“I’ve been following it because I’m interested in the effects on Penn State,” said Jillian Damus, 17, a high school student from State College. “Of course I want to see Jerry Sandusky testify. He hasn’t done a very good job so far.”
