Sandusky, Wife Blame Victims

Well that’s just tacky. Instead of apologizing, Jerry and Dottie Sandusky laid out a brutal attack against the victims of his sexual assaults in letters to Judge John Cleland. “What would be the outcome if all the accusers and their families who were investigated?” Sandusky wrote. “Nobody mentioned the impact of abandonment, neglect, abuse, insecurity and conflicting messages that the biological parents might have had in this.” His wife even belittled the credibility of their adopted son Matt, who admitted to being molested as well. “People need to know what kind of person he is,” she wrote. These letters all but guaranteed a maximum sentence because judges are known to dislike accusatory notes, said legal analysts. Pennsylvania’s Deputy Attorney General Joseph McGettigan, called Sandusky’s behavior “banal, self-delusional, completely untethered from reality. It was entirely-self-focused, as if he himself were the victim.”
