Alleged abuse victims of Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky continued to testify Thursday, as the prosecution winds down its case.

During emotional testimony Wednesday, two victims described alleged encounters with Sandusky — one of them said that Sandusky told him that if he told anyone about the incidents, he'd never see his family again. Sandusky, 68, is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period.

Pennsylvania prosecutors are also considering criminal charges against former Penn State officials, after decade-old emails emerged showing that they decided not to report allegations of abuse by Sandusky to authorities, because they thought it would be "more humane" to Sandusky.
