Jerry Sandusky was arrested just months ago on over 40 counts of pedophilia. A number of young men, and some now adults, came forward sharing that the Penn State coach sexually abused them as children. Though Sandusky told a number of journalists he is innocent, the coach is currently out on $250,000 bail and is under house arrest.
According to TMZ Sandusky and wife Dottie are looking to tell their side of the story. The two want to give an interview together, but are not sure which media outlet would be the most trusting (and probably the higher paycheck). Dottie stood by her husband so far, calling the claims ridiculous and “made up.”
PennLive.com first reported that Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola confirmed the pair are “considering speaking together publicly after the new year ... either to Oprah Winfrey, '60 Minutes,' 'Rock Center' or Barbara Walters." No one has made an offer to the couple for an interview, so some publications feel it is “wishful thinking” on the Sanduskys part.
Amendola has been working on the media for weeks, even inviting reporters and producers to his house to watch a football game last month. One producer got busted for a DUI on the way home!
Could one problem the Sanduskys are running into is that people don’t care about their side of the story? So far Sandusky has done nothing but hurt his case when interviewed, coming off as more arrogant and insensitive than feeling sorry for the victims. The media has painted him as a monster, regardless if the charges are true or false.
Do you think the Sanduskys should get a chance to tell their side of the story?
