Eye on the lion
I had the privilege of getting back to State College to continue working the unfolding story of the Sandusky child sex abuse trial. I'll be there next week, too.
By all means, it's not glamorous, but it's a must to document for the newsworthiness.
Last week, the two days I was stationed in Bellefonte, Penn., for the jury selection, the schedule was the same. Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky would arrive with his attorney around 8 a.m. and leave sometime between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. In other words, the important images were documented in all of a minute combined - that is aside from features and such that took up the rest of the day.
I got creative and setup some remotes to double cover the walk into the court house and will do the same next week. But this was one of my favorite frames which was shot through the windshield of his attorney's SUV. I can't say what he was thinking because I don't know, but I do know he was looking over at the hoards of media recording his every move.
It will be interesting to see how the trial plays out and how the community reacts, too.
