HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The widow of longtime Penn State coach Joe Paterno says she and her husband were ignorant about sexual predators like Jerry Sandusky.
Speaking at a child-abuse prevention program, Sue Paterno says she and her husband sometimes unknowingly helped Sandusky ``groom'' the boys he abused, believing he was helping them find a better life.
Paterno says she was horrified to learn Sandusky sexually abused several young boys.
A probe completed last summer accused Joe Paterno, who died in January 2012, and three former Penn State administrators of covering up an abuse allegation about Sandusky more than a decade ago in an attempt to shield the university from bad publicity.
The Paterno family has vehemently died the late coach had knowledge of Sandusky's crimes.
Sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years in prison.
