Dottie Sandusky Stands By Husband Jerry


Former Penn State coach and accused child molester Jerry Sandusky is out of jail, and his wife is speaking out.

Sandusky posted $250,000 bail, in the form of $200,000 in real estate and a $50,000 certified check from his wife, and he was taken from the Centre County jail to his home in State College in a three-car motorcade.

However, he is now under house arrest, and he cannot contact any of the alleged victims,

Sandusky's wife, Dottie, is speaking out for the first time since the scandal broke.

She released a statement that reads in part: "I am 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," she added.

She went on to say in her statement, "I continue to believe in Jerry's innocence."

This is a case that keeps getting uglier by the day. Sandusky now faces more than 50 charges of sex abuse.

Prosecutors say he molested 10 boys, all of whom he met at The Second Mile, the charity group he founded.

Sandusky is expected to appear in court for a preliminary hearing next week. At least some of the alleged victims will likely testify at that time.

Sandusky's release is causing outrage among Penn State students. Our Jenn Frederick was live Friday morning at Penn State Abington with more details.
