Sandusky hires private investigator, Fine's wife to make statement today – Paul Callan on legal challenges in each case

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach accused of sexual abuse, is working with a private investigator in his quest to prove his innocence, his lawyer said Monday. Attorney Joe Amendola said his client, who is free on $100,000 bail, is conducting his own investigation. Sandusky is charged with 40 counts related to the alleged sexual abuse of eight young boys.

At the same time, the wife of former Syracuse basketball coach Bernie Fine plans to make a statement today regarding the validity of a taped conversation she reportedly had with one of her husband's accusers. The taped conversation suggests she knew about Fine's alleged abuse.

Christine Romans and Carol Costello sit down with CNN legal contributor Paul Callan to discuss the legal challenges in each case.
