(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Breaking news on the account from Jerry Sandusky's lawyer about a defense strategy for his client who is accused of sexual abuse while coaching at Penn State University introduced; details given about other developments in the case, including the resignation of the head of the charity Second Mile, a statement from the new university president and the as yet unanswered questions about who knew what and when and whether coach Joe Paterno and other staffers knew nothing about the story after the 1998 allegations of Sandusky in the shower with a young boy.
