You would think that these letters would attempt to point out any good Sandusky has done in his life in a plea for leniency. Instead, these letters attempted to blame everyone including, “powerful, image-conscious forces at Penn State University, lying cops, ambitious prosecutors and a scandal-hungry news media.”
In the letters Sandusky, also continued to proclaim his innocence and blamed a justice system that failed him.
“My trust in people, systems and fairness has diminished,” he said. “In my heart I know I did not do these disgusting acts. However, I didn’t tell the jury. Our son changed our plans when he switched sides.”
“There were so many people involved in the orchestration of this conviction (media, investigators, prosecutors, “the system,” Penn State and the accusers.) It was well done. They won!”
Dottie Sandusky also wrote of her loss of faith in the justice system.
“To think that they can lie and get by with the lies. The press has been unbelievable. People who have not met us are writing untruths.”
Below are the letters from both Jerry and Dottie Sandusky.
