I mean, he deserves to fry, but so quickly?

Why is the Sandusky trial moving so quickly? In my area the high profile cases seem to take months, if not years, to come to trial, and then the trials themselves take weeks or months. Sandusky's trial started last week and I believe the judge told the jury that they will likely have the case on Thursday. Explain?

Maybe I'm judging by a warped standard, but the highest profile cases in my area -- Southern California, so I'm thinking OJ, Rodney King-related, Menendez Brothers, Michael Jackson's, etc -- seemed to take forever to get going, and then the trials themselves were also slow. But the Sandusky trial is going at an extremely rapid rate, at least to my civilian eyes. Why is this?
