    Should Dorothy Sandusky Be Charged With a Crime?

    Do you feel that Jerry Sandusky's wife should be charged with a crime? More and more is coming out and in this latest arrest the victim says she was home and his screams for help went unanswered. It is pretty clear she overlooked a lot of things.

    I find it ill headed to start charging people with crimes merely because they did nothing to stop a crime.

    The series finale of SEINFELD comes to mind.

    aiding and abetting.

    then, assuming they are guilty, fry them both.

    I would need more details. What if the room was one of those rooms where you can't hear what's going on....a sound room? I wish I could say that I find it hard to believe that she knew and did nothing, but nothing anymore surprises me.

    There would need to be evidence. A simple accusation isn't enough to charge a person with a crime.

    I agree with this, but I think circumstances play a part.

    If the incidents happened in her home, in another room, while she was there, and she knew (or reasonably suspected) what was happening, then I would consider her an accomplice, and yes I feel she should be charged.

    If the incidents took place elsewhere, and she only learned of each one after the fact, then I'm not so sure she should be under any legal obligation to report. Moral, yes. Legal, not so sure.

    I don't think its fair, The stuff this crap does to every-bodies psychology around the situation is messed up. A lot of people find it so horrifying that they try to convince themselves that other things happened instead, unless we can prove she was intentionally making an effort to aid on her own free will,then no charges should be pressed.

    This.

    Of course if she did hear the screams but ignored, then she should suffer some type of consequence. I just don't see that there's evidence to support that she was aware of that particular instance of abuse.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: Should Dorothy Sandusky Be Charged With a Crime?

    If evidence comes to light that she knew of the abuses while/when they happened then I'd understand an aiding and abetting charge. Until such evidence comes to light I think it's hard to say she knew simply because one of the victims shouted for help. There are a million and one reasons why she might not have heard him. I don't want to excuse her of any responsibility she might have, but I also don't want to shove her into the fire based on something circumstantial. We have others who have admitted to knowing or for whom evidence clearly shows they knew who have yet to see charges.

    I want justice for the victims of any criminal behavior proven to have occurred. But I don't want injustice done against innocent parties in the process of performing a witch hunt. Let's move swiftly, but cautiously here.
