abuse against a penn state football coach. two university officials were asked to step down after emergency meeting of the board of trustees. and they will be in court this morning. dan harris is tracking what is unraveling right now. good morning, dan. >> reporter: good morning you to. they call this happy valley in central, pennsylvania. this morning it's anything but happy. two university officials that stepped down, one the athletic director, they will be in court this morning, turning themselves in. they are accused of covering up the alleged sex crimes of a man who had retired in 1999 but was a prominent part of this respected football program. >> i'm sorry, but, my attorney has advised me that -- the situation is in the courts. and i'm not to make any comments. >> reporter: jerry sandusky was once a groomer of linebackers for the storied penn state nittany lions. considered a possible successor to legendary head coach, joe
paterno, and a community pillar for founding a charity for at-risk children. but according to this explicit explosive grand jury report, he used his position to recruit young male victims, many of whom he allegedly assaulted in campus facilities. according to the report, in 2002, a graduate assistant said he saw sandusky having sex with a boy who appeared to be as young as 10. in the showers at the team's practice center. that assistant went to joe paterno. a man who staked his reputation, on running a program known for ethics and integrity, and paterno in turn notified campus officials. but those officials never reported it to police. sandusky continued to work with children. it wasn't until concerned moms stepped forward that sandusky was arrested and charged over the weekend with 40 counts of sex crimes against eight boys. abc's t.j. winick confronted
sandusky in this abc news exclusive. >> can you tell us if you had any inappropriate relations with young boys, sir? >> you didn't hear what i said. i've been advised by my attorney, i am following orders, and i am not priev i have to make making any statements. >> reporter: his attorney says sandusky has maintained his innocence. >> he's very distraught about the charges, the allegations. the knowledge that regardless of whether he proves his guilt or innocence, people are going to think he did this stuff. >> you can tell us the charges are false. >> unfortunately, i'm not in a position to make any statements. >> reporter: while no criminal charges have been filed against joe paterno, some say this man, who just a week ago became the winningest coach in division i history, should have done more. >> i can't say it any more times. sorry. >> reporter: overnight, joe paterno, who is now 84, issued a
statement that he did what he was supposed to with the limited information he had. he grieves for the family. and robin, it's entirely possible that this towering figure in sports could be called to testify in a trial of a man who was once his top lieutenant. >> because this story is far from over. thanks, dan. >> how does it go on for so long? amazing. now to politics. your voice, your vote. a new poll out may tell us why mitt romney is having a hard time breaking away from the republican pack. two months ago from the furthest votes, republicans think he might be the most promising candidate but that's not closing the deal. another weekend in the spotlight for herman cain, too. >> absolutely, george. this poll shows why republican voters are reluctant to stand behind romney. no matter what happens to herman cain or any of the other candidates. republicans in the poll say he's
the candidate with the best chance of beating barack obama. but only 24% want him to be the republican nominee. his biggest problem? republicans hate the health care law he put into place as governor of massachusetts. nearly half of all republicans say the law makes them less likely to vote for romney and on the question of which candidate is the most honest and trustworthy, romney trails herman cain. even after the tough week of sexual harassment allegations. it's romney's flip-flop problem. john huntsman said that romney changed positions so many times he probably can't beat obama. >> when there's a question about whether you're running for the white house of the waffle house, you have a big problem with the people. >> reporter: herman cain had a one-on-one debate with newt gingrich over the weekend, as he struggles to put the harassment story behind him h. they spent much of the time
praising each other. cain seeming to offer newt to be his v.p. >> if you were vice president of the united states -- what would you want the president to assign you to do first? >> reporter: afterwards, cain faced a blizzard of questions about the harassment allegations. he turned it around, attacking the news media for relying on anonymous sources. >> don't even go there. where is my chief of staff. >> right here. >> please send him the journalistic code of ethics. >> if you all just listen for 30 seconds, i will explain this one more time. we're getting back on message. end of story. >> it's been said over and over again, it's up to herman cain to get it out and get it out in total. >> reporter: cain and his advisers are making it clear he does not intend to answer any more questions about the sexual harassment allegations, as one of his advisers told me, we're done talking about that.
>> it remains to be seen if he can get away with that. there are some new signs over the weekend that he's facing more pressure and maybe taking a little bit of a hit with republican voters. >> that's right. the first real indication. a new reuters poll out. his favorability ratings are down significantly. also this poll shows that the majority of registered voters believe the allegations against cain are true. >> thanks, jon. now to the latest in the trail of michael jackson's doctor. the jury about the start their second day behind closed doors. deciding whether to find conrad murray guilty or not. jim avila joins us to look inside that jury room. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it's day two of deliberations. so far the jury has picked a four-person and deliberated about six hours on conrad murray's fate. could this be the day? some think it could be since the jury is deciding one simple
question. and this is involuntary manslaughter. up or down, did michael jackson kill himself or did his doctor do it? the jury will reconvene in a small deliberation room right off the ninth floor courtroom at 8:30 this morning, pacific time. the seven men, five women include an actor, a tv director, a cartoon animator. and five people who say they like watching tv crime shows. inside the jury room is a coffeemaker, 400 pieces of evidence, and a buzzer to communicate with the judge are in the jury room. two buzzes mean, we need a break or have a question. three buzzes means we have a verdict. there's only one charge on the table, involuntary manslaughter. did conrad murray kill michael jackson with an overdose of propofol, or did michael jackson's addiction to demerol
leave him so desperate that he killed himself? a close friend of jackson's, dermatologist arnie klein, spent michael's last christmas with him and his children. famous for botox work on hollywood stars, klein told me he used demerol to work on michael jackson's face to get him ready for his "this is it" tour. i want to know if you addicted him to demerol. >> you know the answer. no. i had nothing to do with it. i made his face better. if that was addicting, to beauty, yes. >> reporter: in the courtroom and jury room, what is the holdup? many people believe it could be the fact that conrad murray is a doctor. juries don't like to convict doctors. in the courtroom, despite what you may have heard about negligence or anything else about conrad murray, he's an imposing figure when you see
him, he looks like a doctor, robin. >> all right, jim, thank you. dan abrams picking up from there. they're not deliberating that long. >> they've only had one day of deliberations. i don't think in any way, shape, or form, this is a long process so far. >> no concern right now from the prosecutors thinking, oh, my goodness, this could be a hung jury? >> not yet. they may be concerned about a hung jury, and rightly so. this is not a whodunit. it is a how did it happen? in a whodunit, it's straightforward. i think this person did it. i don't think this person did it. this is a more complicated case. a lot of facts are not in dispute here. so it becomes an interpretation of what to make of those facts. when you have a case like that, you really increase the possibility that a couple of jurors will say, wait a sec, that's not the way i see it. which would be a loss. >> absolutely a complicated
case. but just one charge. >> one charge, two possible ways they can come to the conclusion. one charge. a straightforward case when it comes to the law. but, i still think that because what the jurors have to do is put together a whole series of facts and talk about possibilities and maybes and could bes and doubts, you do increase the chance that a few jurors will say, i don't see it that way. >> what is your take? some people are surprised the jury is not sequestereded. >> most jurors are not sequestered. people think every time you have a high-profile case, the jury is sequestered. remember, sequestering a jury means you're taking them away there their homes and jobs for weeks at a time. you're talking about enormous costs. this judge decided not to do it even though the defense asked for it. >> nothing surprising there. day two. dan, thank you. josh elliott has the other stories. good morning, josh. >> good morning to you, robin. we begin with important news for the stock market here and around the world. this morning, the prime minister
of greece has agreed to step down. clearing the way for europe's bailout to save the greek economy from collapse, but there are mounting concerns about political turmoil in italy, where another debt crisis could sink global markets. at least 70 aftershocks have shaken oklahoma in the aftermath of the historic earthquake on saturday night. many residents describing the experience, using just one word, terrifying. abc's ryan owens is there. >> reporter: the strongest earthquake in oklahoma's history rattled this university build sog hard, one of its towers tumbled five stories to the ground. it buckled highways and damaged more than a dozen of homes. >> we literally grabbed the bed to stabilize ourselves. >> reporter: he lives near the epicenter of the quake on saturday night. the tiny town of sparks. population more than 100.
this part of the state has seen a lot of shaking recently, including a dozen aftershocks on sunday alone. there's a fault line here. but not sure why suddenly it's so active. no one is hurt. people felt the shaking. >> i hear a few lights rattling here in the studio. we'll -- we still have our -- you can see our dura-tran still shaking. a second large earthquake here. the other early this morning. >> reporter: oklahoma has had a rough year. it's hottest summer, biggest snowfall, largest hailstorm. now its strongest earthquake. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, dallas. >> thank you, ryan. meanwhile, it lasted fewer than five hours. lindsay lohan has served her time behind bars. a judge last week sentenced her to 30 days. for violating probation, but after reporting to jail last
night, she was released early this morning because of overcrowding. next time you park your car, do yourself a favor and park your car. make sure it's not moving as you walk away. look at this. the driver overseas left his car in neutral. watch what happens as it slams in the back of another car and goes right down on to the highway. nose-diving on to the busy street. the car was driverless, and in fact, it did strike the highway without taking out any other cars. >> oh, wow. >> so lucky it -- >> incredibly lucky. incredibly lucky. let's park our cars, people. please. that's the take-away. let's go to sam champion, a merry monday morning to you. >> well -- if anyone can pull it off, you can, robin. okay, happy monday, everybody. let's get to the boards and talk
a little bit about what is going on in the middle of the country. this is one powerful front. it brought the cold weather and snow into the southwest. some of these thunderstorms could carry tornadoes. we're talking about loredo, abilene, oklahoma city, all of the way to wichita. yes. you'll be getting winds from the stores, the winds about 70 miles per hour at the peak. what about the dry weather in northern new england? about eight days in a row without any moisture. we have another three or four coming. 61 degrees coming. the numbers will warm up after the cold weekend. washington, d.c., 62. the middle of the country, there's the powerful front. atlanta, 68. toward the west, widely scattered showers. that, my friends, is the weather around the nation on this, what is it, merry monday, says robin?
that's exactly what it is. >> you're going to nashville later today. that will make anybody happy. now to will and kate. the rumors continue to swirl. with so many looking for signs that a royal heir is on the way. there's something new to buzz about this morning. nick watt has more on that from london. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, george. the latest is that william and kate are planning to move into a new place, a four-bedroom place. with a nursery. which leads me to ask the question, are they nesting? for the most talked about couple in britain, a swank new address. 1-a kensington palace. william grew up here. they decided not to move into the actual apartment. >> william thought perhaps it was a little too crowded with memories and kate thought it was a little too creepy the idea to move not home where her husband grew up. >> reporter: they've chosen this place. "gma" got a sneak peek back in april.
first, major renovation. they'll move in by 2013. by then, they'll probably be parents. the tongues still wagging, after kate declines the peanut paste in copenhagen last week. ? >> we ran a story about the number of times she touched her tummy, 12 times in two hours. frequently patting it. cradling it. >> reporter: no orders from the palace to cease and desist on the pregnancy rumors. >> it would be several, several weeks before any announcement is made officially. three months into a pregnancy, we're told. >> reporter: aside from hand-shaking and tree-planting a royal's job is little more than continuing the dynasty. >> there is pressure on them like you would not believe. >> reporter: last week they changed succession law, the first bourne boy or girl is now heir to the throne and we just might have a bouncing
blue-blooded bablue-bloo blooded baby late spring, early summer. fun time uncle harry, he's going to be moving into a cottage on the grounds of the palace. he'll be the source of all elicit candy. >> fun time uncle harry? is that what you said? >> nothing wrong with a little candy, nick. >> actually, we have another great source here, you saw this apartment. >> yes, i was inside when i went to the royal wedding. i understand why it will take to 2013 to get it renovated. it's a little drafty. needs a little updating. i'm sure it will be a lovely home. with uncle harry next door. thanks, nick. coming up on "gma," is this justin bieber's baby? the woman who says he's the father speaks out to the insider as a teen superstar vows he'll take a dna test. and amanda knox's boyfriend reveals new details of
