STATE COLLEGE — In recent weeks, Dottie Sandusky has been granting interviews, arguing her husband's conviction was unjust and claiming those who testified against him told inaccurate stories to cash in.

“I trust my husband,” she said. “That's what the world is about today. People don't trust anybody. And all these young kids, all they think about is sex.”

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term.

Dottie Sandusky said her husband informed her when complaints were made against him about showering with boys in 1998 and 2001.

Those complaints didn't seem to worry him, she said, even though one spawned an investigation. “He didn't think a thing about it,” she said.

Cliff Rieders, a Williamsport attorney who represents one of the accusers, calls Dottie Sandusky's denials “obscene.”
