BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — The trial of Jerry Sandusky before a central Pennsylvania jury will probably be over in a few weeks.

But when it comes to getting to the bottom of what happened, the trial that'll begin Monday with opening statements by prosecutors and his lawyer will definitely not be the final word.

Testimony in the child sex abuse case will focus on the 52 counts and 10 accusers. The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach could, if convicted, spend the rest of his life behind bars.

There are many other questions, however, being asked in a number of forums that'll have to be answered for the complete story to come to light.

Those looking into the matter include a state grand jury, federal prosecutors, Penn State's own investigation and civil litigators.
