STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The wife of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says she “definitely” believes her husband is innocent despite his conviction of the sexual abuse of 10 boys.

Dottie Sandusky said in an interview broadcast Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” show that “there was nothing that went on because I was here” in the couple’s small State College home.

She denied being a “weak spouse” and said she believes her husband’s accusers had been manipulated “once the lawyers came into the case.”

She said in the interview recorded Monday that she believed that her husband showered with children but “that’s the generation that Jerry grew up in.”

Jerry Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence. He insists he is innocent and has appealed to the state Supreme Court.
