The trial of a former Penn State football coach is moving much faster than expected, as the defense takes the stands Tuesday.

Sandusky now faces 51 counts of child sexual abuse, after the prosecution dropped a misdemeanor child endangerment charge.

The defense is now expected to wrap up Wednesday, and closing arguments are planned for Thursday.

No word yet on if the Sandusky intends to take the stand.
