STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The wife of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says it was long after he'd been arrested, tried and convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys that she realized just how much trouble he was in.
In an interview with The Associated Press this week at her home in State College, Dottie Sandusky said she still had hope even after his 45-count guilty verdict.
She says it was only until the judge sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in state prison that she fully comprehended his predicament.
She's been granting interviews in recent weeks, arguing her husband's conviction was unjust and claiming the accusers who testified against him lied to get money.
An attorney who represents one of the accusers calls her denials ''obscene.''
