BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky's attorneys are trying to link the evolving testimony of accusers to details investigators shared with them during interviews.

The defense is trying to demonstrate the eight alleged victims could have been reacting to seeds planted by investigators when they said they had been sexually abused by the former Penn State assistant football coach.

A retired state police corporal initially said Tuesday that he did not recall sharing details of specific sex acts with accusers. But defense attorney Joe Amendola read him an interview transcript where he told one accuser that police had received reports of oral sex and rape involving Sandusky.

Sandusky is charged with 51 counts involving 10 boys. He denies the allegations.
