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.

If this woman admits to the world that her husband is guilty, she will have to admit that all this abuse if children was going on right under her nose and she did nothing to stop it. I agree, this is denial in its highest form. She and the pedophile complement each other. I cannot help but agree with a comment I read that she should be charged as an accessory. So should the judges that allow bail.

BS.. not that many young men would have come forward if this were all a lie.. one maybe but 6? Woman please! This just goes to show that wives don't know what their hubbies are doing much of the time.

I feel sorry for his family....BUT.....could all 10 of these victims (who don't know each other) be falsely accusing him of sexually abuse that spanned many years.....I DON'T THINK SO.

One of the two most recent accusers says he screamed while she was in the house and no one came to help him. She's as big a monster as he is.

Apparently both the Sanduskys need to buy the latest dictionary and look up the word innocence. I believe they have made up their own definition. The same way they believe that molestation is a fun day with the kids down in the basement. OMG

HOW DARE YOU! Love children? The days of denial and covering for molesters is over! I hope you lose everything, because obviously that is what your true concerns are. In Gods eyes, I am pretty sure you will be held guilty by association. Go ahead, stand by your man just as you will do at judgement day.

Then why did one of her kids decide that Sandusky would never see one of his little grandsons again and that she suspected he did something to his own grandson?

There's another big child molestation case out in California involving Dr. William Ayres, a former President of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Like Sandusky, he groomed the kids, bought them presents, took them on trips, and assaulted them in his office...similar abuse. Yet his wife Solveig stands by him...

Pretty standard for wives of pedophiles to defend them. John Wayne Gacy's wife stood by him too for a while.There was a good article this week in Newsweek about why people like Dotty and Solveig Ayres stand by their men - low self-esteem, no identity of their own.
