Here's a look at the 16 men and women who will hear the case:
Juror 16 (alternate): Woman with short, wavy gray hair. Short and stout in her 60s. Doesn't trust media reports. Staunchly believes in innocent until proven guilty. Says she's seen enough TV and movies to know guilt has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. No Penn State connections. She and her husband left State College when they were 19 and didn't come back for 42 years.
Juror 15 (alternate): Walked in and immediately smiled brightly at Sandusky. A man in his 50s with close-cropped brown hair. Attorneys and Sandusky whispered in strategy to get him on the jury. Has two boys, ages 29 and 30. Works in Reading, Pa., so is out of town during the week. Is a graduate of Penn State. His wife is director of Upward Bound, a Penn State program geared at getting high schoolers ready for college. Is a football fan, mostly in the 1970s.
Juror 14 (alternate): A middle-aged white woman with wavy blond hair. Married and has no children. No one has approached her to talk about the case. Said she's ready to be impartial.
Juror 13 (alternate): Single woman in her 30s, and a 2007 Penn State graduate in health and human development.
Juror 12: Woman in her 50s or 60 who has been a Penn State professor for the past 24 years. She worked worked on committee with fired university President Graham Spanier and current president Rodney Erickson for six years. She did not say what she teaches. Sandusky gave a commencement address at her graduation, and she has two sons ages 14 and 16.
Juror 11: A Penn State continuing education instructor of dance. Mother of a 6-year-old boy. Late 30s. When asked about her son by Sandusky's attorney Joe Amendola, she she recognizes kids don't always tell the truth. She also has ties to a witness -- Kelly Hastings, the superintendent of the Clinton County school district where alleged Victim One attended school, and where Sandusky was a volunteer football coach before he was accused.
Juror 11's husband works as a media information specialist at Penn State, and she said she has talked to him about this case.
Juror 10: Woman in her 50s who works at Penn State as administrative assistant in engineering. She has two daughters and four grand kids.
The following jurors were picked on Tuesday, the first day of selection:
Juror 9: Woman in her 70s, who also reads the Centre Daily Times, and is a retired school bus driver of 17 years.
At first, she mentioned she felt it was her duty to protect kids, saying "I can't just see children hurt." But when questioned more, she said she could put aside her feelings and be fair.
Juror 8: White man in his 60s or 70s. Retired Penn State professor of soil science for 37 years. Said he reads the Centre Daily Times, the local newspaper.
Juror 7: Penn State rising senior who grew up in Penns Valley, which is in Centre County, and played for Steve Turchetta -- now the Clinton County high school coach who hired Sandusky as a volunteer assistant. Turchetta was the assistant principal at the time Sandusky was first accused by alleged Victim One -- a student at that high school.
Juror 7 came wearing a Penn State archery shirt, and works for the athletic department part-time in the multi-sports facility. He read a lot about the case and had opinions, he said, but could put them aside for the trial.
His cousin also played on the Penn State football team for six years, and his mom works for the State College Area School District.
Amendola wanted to strike Juror 7 since he played for Steve Turchetta, but the judge denied the strike.
Juror 6: Woman in her 20s who says she never reads news or watches television. She works at a State College property management company and has some interactions with Penn State students, but said that wouldn't affect her opinions. She had brown hair.
Juror 5: Bellefonte Area High School chemistry teacher. In his 30s, with three young kids -- two are boys. Attorney Joe Amendola asked him if he could set aside having young boys, and he said yes.
Juror 4: A State College engineer with no ties to Penn State. Middle-aged, white. Says he reached his saturation level of the Sandusky coverage about 2 1/2 months ago and hasn't been reading since. His wife works at a local community library, and he's a Maryland native.
Juror 3: A woman whose husband is a physician who worked with Mike McQueary's father, John McQueary, before he retired. Amendola asked the judge to strike her, but he didn't. The judge said that in a small town, that's bound to happen, and was reluctant to strike her. Sandusky intervened at that point, and said to his attorney, "I think she can be fair," after hearing that she had season tickets for many years to Penn State football games. The McQueary's are expected to be key witnesses in the case of Victim Two. In that case, Mike McQueary says he stumbled upon Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in the Penn State football locker room and reported it to two Penn State officials. Those officials were charged with lying about the incident and never reporting it to police. John McQueary is expected to support his son's testimony.
Juror 2: A 24-year-old who plans to start school in the fall to study automotive technology. His father worked for 30 years at Penn State in the office of the physical plant.
Juror 1: A mother and Walmart employee, who says she doesn't know much about the case.
