    Last 2 paragraphs summarized/quoted here:

    Judge said error was not the fault of prosecutors. According to an NBC source "the problem rests with NBC, not with the state attorney general's office."

    Judge told jurors to disregard the video that they saw.

    He will not play the correct version, "but told the jury they must consider an accurate printed transcript of the video that will be given to them when they begin deliberations after testimony concludes."

      The recording of the interview of Sandusky with NBC's Bob Costas contained an inadvertent repeat of part of the segment
      So it's not like there was anything incorrect about what was said, it was more just a video glitch, which is why the transcript can still be considered, I suppose.

        Was concerned about how the repeat would influence the jury since it was like it was re-emphasizing the point (of whatevr may have been repeated)

        So they probably had to investigate who made the tape.  Appears NBC provided and they acknowledged the mistake. Defense was probably inferring prosecutors did it.

        Bleh.

        the defense will take? 4 days for the prosecution, I don't know if the defense usually takes more, the same, or less time than the prosecution?

        You & Roxine get some rest.
