A verdict is expected at any moment

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom.

Tonight at 11:00PM—with the jury deliberating late, a verdict is expected at any moment in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial.  Apparently, Sandusky's defense attorney isn't very confident about his case.  "I would be shocked and die of a heart attack if my client were acquitted on all counts," said Joe Amendola.  Sandusky is charged with 48 counts of abusing 10 boys over a 15 year period.

Should the county compensate business owners for the loss of revenue during a water main break at Birkdale?   Restaurants and boutiques had to shut down for 10 hours during the water outage.  They're waiting to hear if they'll be paid for their troubles.

If you run across Wonder Woman or Captain America this weekend, not to worry.  The annual Heroes Comic Book convention is back in uptown and just the costumes people wear is worth the price of admission.  Enjoy your weekend, everyone.
