Criminal defense attorney Jose Baez weighs in on Sandusky trial, says sheer number of victim testimony is 'mountain to overcome' for defense

The Jerry Sandusky trial is in recess today. It will pick up on Monday morning when the prosecution is expected to wrap up its case and the defense is expected to begin.

Some of the most shocking and graphic testimony came from three alleged victims yesterday. Victim #9 testified that he screamed for help while Sandusky abused him in the basement. But he says help never came.

Criminal defense attorney Jose Baez, author of "Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony, the Inside Story," explains how the volume of victims testifying so far in the case has created a 'mountain to overcome' for the defense.
