    Re: Should Dorothy Sandusky Be Charged With a Crime?

    She is speaking out and of course claiming innocence and denying the basement thing. As if she would admit it

    U.S. News - Sandusky's wife: 'I continue to believe in Jerry's innocence'

    From part of her statement:
    I have been shocked and dismayed by the allegations made against Jerry, particularly the most recent one that a now young man has said he was kept in our basement during visits and screamed for help as Jerry assaulted him while I was in our home and didnít respond to his cries for help.

    As the mother of six children, I have been devastated by these accusations. I am also angry about these false accusations that such a terrible incident ever occurred in my home. No child who ever visited our home was ever forced to stay in our basement and fed there. All the kids who visited us ate with us and our kids and other guests when they were at our home. Our children, our extended family and friends know how much Jerry and I love kids and have always tried to help and care for them. We would never do anything to hurt them. I am so sad anyone would make such a terrible accusation which is absolutely untrue. We donít know why these young men have made these false accusations, but we want everyone to know they are untrue.

    U.S. News - Sandusky rearrested in Pennsylvania
    Maybe the basement was soundproofed?

    Twenty States and the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands specify in the reporting laws the penalties for failure to report.4 Upon conviction, a mandated reporter who fails to report can face jail terms ranging from 10 days to 5 years or fines ranging from $100 to $5,000. In seven States and American Samoa, in addition to any criminal penalties, the reporter may be civilly liable for any damages caused by the failure to report.5
    Was she a Mandatory Reporter?

    I do not agree with that statement with some crimes...especially with someone who is in a house where peophillia on a child is being perpetrated a mere phone call would stop it....if she was in fact in the house and let it go on...she certainly should be charged
    I cant vote in this poll until its proven either way if she had knowledge a child was being abused..

    NO
    People must realize that things change,ever so slowly, that many live in the past.
    200 years ago, did anyone hear a slave cry out in pain ?
    True, for most of us, a fellow humans call for help would be answered....but for many(far too many,IMO, ) the help is not necessary, that screaming is normal.....Hard to imagine, is it not..??
    I think this poor woman lived in fear...why is it that no-one came to her rescue ?
    This scandal is an indictment on all of us.
    We must do what results in good and positive things.. NOT what satisfies our need for revenge.

    The child cried for help. If she needed help, she could have dialed 911 and said my husband is raping a young boy downstairs. Am pretty certain she would have help in matter of minutes.

    And no the scandal is not an indictment on all of us.

    Laws are fine and dandy.
    What we need is more love and understanding.
    Particularly Sandusky - he could be a latent homosexual...and to him, this is a horrible crime......

    Well, I'm glad you straightened this out...
    And would you have this woman fry in hell ?? for her inaction ...
    CrossCheck, you are much younger than I...
    I remember when these abuses whhere commonplace ,yet not reported...due to ignorance and fear.
    Most of us have improved over the years, other are slow to catch on.
    This includes Paterno and Sandusky's wife....and all of us !

    If its found out that she knew about what was going on, if that is proven, if she was there and knew and did nothing.... then YES she DID FACILITATE. She didnt say a word and therefore allowed it to happen. And then afterward didnt report it, allowing the possibility for it to happen again to that child or to other children.

    I believe that if you KNOW something is going on and do nothing, it makes you just as guilty.
