FILE - In this Dec. 13, 2011 file photo, former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky arrives with his wife, Dottie Sandusky, for a preliminary hearing at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pa. Dottie Sandusky says it was long after he’d been arrested, tried and convicted before she realized just how much trouble the former Penn State assistant football coach had gotten himself into. In an interview this week at her home in State College, Dottie Sandusky said that even after his 45-count guilty verdict in the child molestation case, she still had had hope. But when the judge gave him to 30 to 60 years in state prison, she said, she fully comprehended the trouble he was in. She’s been granting interviews in recent weeks, arguing her husband’s conviction was unjust and claiming the victims who testified against him told inaccurate stories to cash in. An attorney involved in negotiating with Penn State on behalf of his victims calls her denials “obscene.” (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File)
