We have one victim who says he shouted for help when she was in the home. We can only assume she heard him unless other information is released to show differently.

    As I said before, if they can find evidence to show she knew/witnessed/was told and failed to do anything about it then I fully support any legal action that the DA takes. If they can't, however, without any other information it's very possible she never knew until the news broke on this whole thing.
    Yeah, I'm not really understanding the certainty people have about this. It's often the case with people who commit such heinous crimes that they lead a double life that their loved one's are unaware of, particularly since most of us cannot even imagine that our loved ones would do something as horrific as what Sandusky did (allegedly as I guess I should say), so it's not hard to imagine that she wouldn't have known.

    As to the specific situation - her hearing a kid calling for help - there are certainly places in my house where someone could scream and I wouldn't hear. I think people are just so horrified by this entire situation that they're just starting to assume every possible horror they believe is true.

    Moreover, if I'm not mistaken, not even the accuser said that Mrs. Sandusky heard him. He just said she was in the house.

    Why would I say such a thing?

    I do. If someone wants me to move and I say no, that is my right. They have the right to ask and I have the right to say no, but neither of us has a right to force an action on the other.

    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 !
    Oh my goodness no, not fry in hell. Heck, they should have her and Jerry be the grand marshalls in the Rose Bowl Parade.

    She protected him then and is still out there trying to protect him saying all these kids and the assistant coach are making this up.

    It just amazes me how all these people whom many are unknown to each other have gotten together to bring this plan to burn Sandusky.

    She won't be indicted and I think she will be punished enough living with the fact that lived with a man who has injured many young lives.

    Maybe.

    Marital Privelege applies here, so nothing she says against him or he says against her can be used as evidence.

    I suspect she is not innocent. One does not live for decades with a man who molests children in one's own home without a clue as to what has been happening. However, there has to be significant evidence found outside the Sandusky's themselves to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she knew what was happening, failed to stop what was happening, and failed to report what was happening.

    As a legal standard, that's a steep hill to climb... BUT it's not insurmountable. If the evidence is there, she should be arrested and charged.

    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.
    There is, or was, a thing in America:
    Innocent until proved guilty
    These accusers had best have concrete evidence.
    Medical evidence, or perhaps the sheer number of accusers.
    This must be done very carefully.

    I would think ,prior to charging the wife with a crime, the activities of the husband have to be proven as criminal...

    if his action are found to be legal, then she committed no crime, obviously.

    And what good will it do to crucify Mrs Sandusky ?

    Sir, I suspect that you misunderstand my stance.
    I feel that being a hard-arse on criminals works NOT....Being tough on crime, this may be effective...
    Those, once injured young men - how do they feel about things ?
    Given a face to face with the Sanduskys, what would happen ?
    This would be most interesting......
    Would love or hate ensue ?
    If me ?
    pity
    Incarceration improves the criminal - makes him a better criminal, so this is out.
    If, in fact, these people did commit crimes, and I think that they did, the problem is to convince them that they did..
    This seems to be impossible...
    Fine and shame the hell out of them ?
    maybe ...

    I do. If someone wants me to move and I say no, that is my right. They have the right to ask and I have the right to say no, but neither of us has a right to force an action on the other.
    Nope. Try it and see.
