Day 4 of Graphic, Emotional Testimony in Jerry Sandusky Trial

(NECN/NBC News: Brian Mooar) - Thursday saw another day of graphic and emotional testimony in the child sexual abuse trial against Jerry Sandusky.

The former Penn State coach is charged with 52 counts of abuse involving ten minors over a 15 year period.

For a second straight day, the prosecution used Sandusky's words to make the case against him.

An investigator testified that Jerry Sandusky admitted to showering with young boys back in 1998, and admitted it was bad judgment, but denied sexual intent.

Former State Police investigator Ronald Schreffler recalled that he was contacted by the mother who claimed Sandusky had touched her 11-year-old son in a Penn State shower.

The mother invited Sandusky to her home, and with the investigator listening, struck up a conversation that ended with Sandusky saying:

"I would ask forgiveness. I know I will not get it from you. I wish I were dead."
