Sandusky Trial, Kids as Weapons & Dan Rather
The Jerry Sandusky trial continues today. The teen, labeled Victim No. 1, tearfully recounted for jurors repeated instances of alleged abuse, which he said included kissing, fondling and oral sex during sleepovers at the coach's home. The 18-year-old whose testimony launched the sex abuse investigation into Sandusky says he received so much backlash for doing so, that he had to change schools. Tonight we're asking what it's like to face your abuser in court.
Plus, a disturbing report from the United Nations says there have been grave violations against children in Syria since the uprising began. The report says Syrian troops have tortured children and used them as human shields on tanks to prevent attacks by opposition forces. We'll have the latest developments out of Syria tonight.
