      Analysis: Number of victims persuaded Sandusky jurors in 'he said, he
      said' case
      By Wes Oliver, Special to msnbc.com ANALYSIS 6/23/12

      Friday night was not a good night for the Penn State community but you
      couldn't tell it from the atmosphere outside the courtroom. Jerry
      Sandusky was convicted of the overwhelming majority of the child sex
      abuse counts of against him. The verdict revealed that the jury believed
      the account of every of major witness the prosecution presented. There
      were only three verdicts of 'not guilty' in the 48 counts Sandusky
      faced....

      The eight witnesses demonstrated a range of credibility. Ultimately the
      jury concluded that all of the victims were credible but carefully
      examined their testimony to see if it established the crimes alleged. It
      is entirely possible that no single victim could have prevailed in the
      he-said, he-said conflict in this case. But the victims reinforced one
      another. The odds that they were all lying were too remote for the jury
      to conclude anything other than they were all telling the truth.
