Jerry Sandusky's Wife

My Husband Is INNOCENT

12/8/2011 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1208_dottie_sandusky_jerry_BNJerry Sandusky's wife is standing behind her man ... claiming he NEVER raped any boys and insists all of his accusers are making up their stories.

For the first time since the allegations went public, Dottie Sandusky has released a statement through her husband's lawyer ... claiming she never witnessed Jerry sexually abusing anyone ... and doesn't believe any of the allegations.

In her statement Dottie says she's been "shocked and dismayed by the allegations made against Jerry."

She adds, "As the mother of six children, I have been devastated by these accusations. "

"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."

As we previously reported, Dottie helped bail her husband out of jail this morning after he was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing two more young boys.

I really feel for this woman, but when so many victims step forward, she had to accept that her husband is not the man she thought he was.

This is typical response of a woman who would be married to a child predator. she is not only in denial she is probably worse messed up then he is. who on earth would allow this sickness to endure! she cannot possibly fathom the damage she has caused by allowing her husband to do this! i don't understand why people protect abusers. it makes no sense.

The wife is the first to suspect, but the last to know. After years of neglect and insults from the pedophile, she has no confidence and doubts herself. In many ways, she was the first victim destroyed as a woman and convinced that her thoughts were not valid. I would think she suffers from depression and sought therapy, which was further used to diminish any thing she said or thought or felt. Brainwashing techniques used on her from the beginning and she probably had no self esteem to begin with. Remember he is the criminal, who used her to hide.

Sorry, Dottie. But when Jerry cried out those names during love-making (Jonnie, Chris, Bobbie, etc.), they weren't girls he knew in high school, as he said. They were the boys in the cellar.

Poor woman. But what can she do? She still wants to keep the family together. So, she has chosen what to believe.
