Do you really know what it's like to be in Dottie Sandusky's shoes right now? Can you imagine her horror and disbelief that the last six months of her life had become? Do we believe that she knew nothing of her husband's pedophilia after all those years of marriage?

Or maybe you are a "stone thrower" who stands with feet slightly apart and firmly planted on the ground, with your fist shaking in the air and chanting "lock the bitch up too".

Undoubtedly Jerry Sandusky stooped to the lowest of the lowest form of infidelity when he abused his young victims, an act that is so despicable in our normal culture that we can't visualize how anyone could take advantage of another person like that. But how can a wife of 45 years not know what her husband is doing in the basement of their home when he took young boys down there? One expert has theorized that she was an "assailant by proxy" whereby she knew the facts, buried them in her mind and shielded the "miscreant" while she allowed him to continue.

I partially believe that could be true. Jerry Sandusky may have started a potentially innocent friendship with a young boy, someone he was genuinely helping and was fond of, but his sexual desires got the better of him and as those desires progressed his risky behavior escalated and he took more chances with more young boys, which of course is why he was finally exposed. Rather like a serial murderer, their behavior gets more risky with each killing but they always get caught in the end.

But there is another angle I look at with Dottie Sandusky: She wasn't about to give up the good life for her and the children while hubby held his super job with Penn State. Where would she go and how would they live? Besides, what happened to not testifying against your husband in Court, she could have rationalized to herself. However, eventually, by taking the stand, it was said that she had presumably waived any right not to testify.

This also raises the issues of Catholic priests abusing boys and for years have been getting away with it. There have been hundreds of thousands of allegations of child sexual abuse in the last fifty years with cover-ups, pay-offs and then merely sending the offending Priest to another parish where he could find new victims to prey on. Pedophile priests are criminals just like Jerry Sandusky and they too should be sent away to prison for the rest of their lives.

And for the wife left behind? Leave her alone to pick up the pieces of her destroyed life.
