Dottie Sandusky- Penn State Jerry Sandusky Wife
Dottie Sandusky has defended her husband from all the accusation on him regarding sexually abusing more than 9 children in a 15 year period of time, some of these alleged abuse occurred under her own roof, many wonder if their adopted children were abused too, or how much did Dottie knew about her husband abusing these children or if she should face charges like her husband?
The first time Jerry Sandusky abuse allegations were heard was in 2009, although it was only heard within Penn State, this year the children who Jerry Sandusky allegedly abused sexually are grown men and all of them are speaking about their painful pasts with former coach Sandusky, he will faced these men on a trial very soon.
Like is lawyer his wife Dottie and their children 46 year-old Ray, 41 year-old EJ, 38 year-old Kara, 35 year-old Jeff and 33 year-old sons Matt and Jon are defending him, his charity however the Second Mile cut all connection with him, and shamefully it was at Second Mile where Jerry met his accusers, these children said how their were impresses by him, he could take them to games, gave them gifts and basically overwhelmed them with everything he could give them, these children said they just couldn’t said No to Jerry, they also said that they were abuse at the Penn State facilities and the Sandusky’s home.
68 year-old Dorothy Gross Sandusky aka Dottie from Chattanooga, Tennessee have been married for 45 years they got married in 1966, at first she remained quiet at first but when her husband was bombarded with new allegations, he was taken to jail, not for long thought since it was Dottie who paid the bail money (250.000), shortly after Dottie Sandusky who said she never saw any abuse, heard anything and that her husband is innocent released the following statement….
“I want to thank our children, our family, our extended family of former Second Mile participants, and all our friends for standing by us through these difficult times.
Jerry and I want to express our sorrow for all the hurt that has come to those who have supported us and our beloved Penn State and State College Communities.
I have been shocked and dismayed by the allegations made against Jerry, particularly the most recent one that a now young man has said he was kept in our basement during visits and screamed for help as Jerry assaulted him while I was in our home and didn’t respond to his cries for help.
As the mother of six children, I have been devastated by these accusations. I am also angry about these false accusations that such a terrible incident ever occurred in my home. No child who ever visited our home was ever forced to stay in our basement and fed there. All the kids who visited us ate with us and our kids and other guests when they were at our home. Our children, our extended family and friends know how much Jerry and I love kids and have always tried to help and care for them. We would never do anything to hurt them.
I am so sad anyone would make such a terrible accusation which is absolutely untrue.
We don’t know why these young men have made these false accusations, but we want everyone to know they are untrue. I continue to believe in Jerry’s innocence and all the good things he has done.
Jerry’s many success stories with his Second Mile kids and positive memories of those kids keep me going. I am asking everyone to please be reasonable and open-minded until both sides of this case are heard, and Jerry has the opportunity to prove his innocence.
I would like to thank all those individuals who continue to support Jerry and hope they will continue to support us through the conclusion of this very sad time in our lives.
Some people said is just unthinkable she wouldn’t notice something happened at her basemen, victim #9 said he saw Dottie at the house one night when he was abuse, she was in her bedroom upstairs, he screamed for help hoping she would come down, but she never did. Dottie showed up by her husband’s side at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania on December 13, 2011 for his preliminary hearing, he still is under house arrest, must wear an ankle bracelet and must not have any contact to any of the accusers.
