Jerry Sandusky's Wife Denies She Ignored Rapes
ABC News ^ | Dec. 8, 2011 | COLLEEN CURRY

Posted on 12/08/2011 6:56:00 PM PST by Outlaw Woman

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky's wife has denied allegations that her husband sexually abused boys in their home and that she ignored cries for help.

Sandusky was arrested Wednesday on 10 new counts of child sex abuse charges based on the testimony of two new alleged victims. The new allegations bring to 10 the number of alleged sex abuse victims.

Dottie Sandusky, who delivered a $50,000 check today to help bail her husband out of jail, was named in the testimony of one of the new alleged victims.

Mrs. Sandusky has been implicated in the alleged sex abuse crimes by three of the men who claim to have been assaulted by her husband.

The Pennsylvania attorney general's office,...

I have difficulty believing a woman when she says that she was unknowledgeable about sexual abuse happening in her home for years on end.

She might never have seen an actual rape happen in her home, but she generally knows that something is happening.

Many women often look the other way.

If these assaults took place in the home and if she were there when they happened she damn well knew about it, but to keep living the good life she turned a deaf ear to it.

Women know. Instinctively, the majority of women have a 'sixth' sense (so to speak). Wives know when something is not quite right. I don't buy that she knew nothing about this.

I wouldn’t want to be her when it finally occurs to her shes married to and has been enabling “a MONSTER”..
FOR YEARS shes been part of a Monsters MASK.. like makeup.. merely a costume..
A DUPE.. a useful idiot.. UNless she has been an active part of it..

Its possible she is totally devoid of any morals like her “MONSTER”..
She may not be a PollyAnna but wicked witch... a female Vampire of another sort..

I don’t know what in the heck happened.....but ANY wife would at least SUSPECT something was going on. Either she was ‘getting off’ to this, too, or she loved her ‘lifestyle’ too much.

There was a GRUESOME case in the UK just a few years back of a hubby/wife team who killed young kids where the wife was involved and the bodies buried under the house.

I have no idea but as this story became a big deal, the new accusers seem to have more and more dramatic accounts. Maybe it happened that a kid was kept in the basement, and maybe it didn’t.

From what I have seen, women married to an abuser often have very submissive personalities and have been psychologically abused themselves...that is, he tells them they’re not attractive, they make him sick, blah, blah, blah. And they actually feel guilty about objecting to anything he does.

This may not be her case, but I don’t know anything about her and I have no idea what her situation was. However, unless they didn’t live together or she was away most of the time for some reason, it would be very odd for his wife to have no suspicion whatsoever.

There is a huge difference between “suspecting something” and being a “Monster, wicked witch, vampire, etc.....” and knowing a kid is being raped in the basement.

This is why we have trials and juries and rights to a defense. This crowd would run out and murder the guy’s wife and you all know what she knew, why she did it, just like the couple that buried kids in the UK, on and on.

Isn’t it too damn easy to join this lynch mob? How about waiting till someone knows what actually happened?

Just a wild guess that as new stories come out, some may not be accurate.

And no I’m not a MONSTER, vampire, and I have no use for child molesters. I might consider torturing some of them to death, but that’s another story.

Sure Dottie...why would you EVER think anything was amiss? All your friends' hubbies wrestled with pre-pubescent boys, right? And showered with them? And took them on trips? And were arrested for child molestation several times? Sure...why would you suspect anything?

You dreadful lying witch...

BTW the wife has not been indicted or even accused of anything. I believe this story came out yesterday? And all the wife did was have the nerve to come out and say there is no way this stuff hapened in the house as described. Now she’s guilty and by virtue of esp no less!

maybe shes an evil woman, maybe she’s a money grubber,maybe she’s a decent woman. I have no idea but I have no reason to believe she has extra sensory perception.

She knew. If it only happened once then maybe not, but pederasts assault hundreds of boys in their lifetime.

This was going on for decades and his interest in being alone with young boys and no other adults is a big clue to his immaturity and perversion. Most mature adults enjoy conversations with other adults and very rarely want to spend evenings and days with just children.

It is hard enough putting up with one’s own children, much less someone else’s. Even I wanted to have other adults with me when going to the zoo, beach, etc. with my own kids and I am a nurturing female who loved children. Males are NOT females by nature.

It has been said that women will look the other way when their husbands are cheating....when their husbands are perving....when their husbands are molesting.... when their husbands are molesting their own kids.... because such activity keeps him from requesting sex from her, which she does not want.

Given that Sandusky ain't Sean Connery.... well, just sayin...

I also know that women are generally aware of their husbands personal patterns. They also know that if his patterns change, there’s something happening.

The only caveat I would allow is if Sandusky was always having young men and boys hanging around him, prior to her knowing him, because then his patterns would have the normal ups and downs, for him, and she wouldn’t be aware.

But then the question should arise as to why he hangs around young boys so much and not grown men.

So disgusting. There are so many enablers. The whole community should be outraged to have these predators living among them.

My wish would be for lightning to strike the Sandusky house —preferably while Jerry and the Missus are in the shower. (Of course, they wouldn’t be there together...Jerry only showers with little boys.)

There are instances where you might be right, but please don’t trot out that “women instinctively know” line.

When it comes to men, women can be the most clueless people on the planet.

Of course the same can be said of men, when it comes to their instincts about women.

Both sexes get it part of the time, when it comes to people of the opposite sex. Being married to people is no guarantee of anything.

I’m also aware of at least one witness to HIM doing something. That was not the wife. Do I think he’s guilty? yeah. Could the wife have been suspicious? Yeah.

Fist, I def am mot ready to lynch the wife, esp notwithstanding.

Second, I am suspicious of the latest story about being kept in a basement and raped for days whike screaming for help. May have happened, I just have a healthy suspicion. I wasn’t there.

>Many women often look the other way.<

And the reason they do it is so they have continued access to their husbands money.

At one time I would have never believed anyone would turn a blind eye to child rape, but there was a case nearby of just that. The wife knew, but covered for her (wealthy) husband.

Sickening, and I hope all like this rot in hell for eternity.

I’ve had my suspicions about this old bag since I read that a doll was in the window of the Sandusky house. I found that detail very, very creepy. And most people suspect she’s the one who put it in the window.

Women are for more in tune with their husband’s personal patterns than men are with their wives.

Unless the man had a thing for children, prior to meeting her, and was able to hide for her at that point, she would have noticed his changes in how he went about things.

Men are very direct and simple in terms of how they do things.

I wonder did Dottie wash the sheets, or did she have a maid? Either way, someone else knew what Jerry was doing to kids in that basement, and didn’t report it.

Motel maids assert that gay men make the biggest messes in the shower and in the sheets. You would think there would be a lot of blood from the anal rape of little boys.

Just some questions for investigators to ask of Mrs. Sandusky and anyone who cleaned her house.

I suspect when a woman knows something like this it is because the man's behavior towards her changes.

If this was happening from day one the behavior would have no reason to change, it would have always been like that.

It would be "normal"...

Maybe the Old Guard there are complicit, but there are many young families, new residents, right on the street where Sandusky lives, who want him kept in jail, not out on parole.

Sandusky’s back deck overlooks the playground of the elementary school.

Tar and feathers, anyone?

Sandusky did not make bail yesterday when arrested on the latest charges and had to spend at least one night in the Centre County Prison.

I’m hoping for a little “jailhouse justice” and a taste of his own medicine. Don’t drop the soap, Jerry.

You know, it wasn't all that long ago (I think Summer of 2010) when a FREEPER poster mentioned that some of the other posters would have enough mayhem in them to be linked to a murder that just occurred in Visalia, CA.

That FREEPER poster was zotted for saying what he did.

Here, you've just said "This crowd would run out and murder the guy’s wife..."

I frankly don't see too much of a distinction between what got that 2010 FREEPER zotted and what you just said -- other than the Visalia murder was actual and your comment is a "mere" potential.

Either way, you and that zotted one are accusing other FREEPERS of murderous intent.

I'm not the "zot" decision-maker around here, but in case the AM might be interested, wanna explain to him/her why your accusation doesn't constitute a potentially "zottable" offense?

I wasn’t “joining a lynch mob,” and in fact I said that if she did suspect this, it’s possible that she was acting the way any psychologically abused woman would act - that is, very submissive, willing to excuse or ignore anything, etc.

Many, many women married to child molesters or even killers of children have simply mentally denied the whole thing and seem to be totally surprised when he is arrested. Others have participated, but this does not seem to be the case with Sandusky’s wife.

How is this advocating lynching her?

There’s a doll placed in the window of their home - upstairs in what must obviously be one of the bedrooms. It was just a detail in the newspaper. But it struck a very strange chord with me - considering the house is apparently next to a school.

I never advocated doing anything to Sandusky’s wife and in fact I said that if she knew about the abuse, she was possibly psychologically abused herself and did not feel that she had the right or the power to intervene.

The wife of Dugard (the one who held a kidnapped girl in his backyard in CA for years and even had two or three children with her) certainly knew about it, but she was incapable of complaining - when you see a picture of her, you can see that she was just a dishrag.

It’s true that there are some women who would actively participate in things like this if they felt it would please their man (the British serial killer couple, for example). But I think many of these women suspected it from the start and were really just heavily into denial by the time of trial. There may be some who are spectacularly oblivious, but I’d suspect that they are pretty few and far between.

Unlikely. The perv liked boys. I doubt he was trying to attract girls. You wouldn’t use a doll to attract boys.

I don’t know what the significance of a doll in the window is, but I don’t think a perv looking for boys would use one for a “lure”.
