STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WDTN) – Her husband is in prison serving time for child abuse, but Dottie Sandusky refuses to believe her husband, Jerry, is guilty.

She sat down with The Today Show’s Matt Lauer for an exclusive one-on-one interview, the first since her husband’s incarceration. The interview took place inside the very home where Jerry Sandusky was accused of sexually abusing boys in the basement.

Lauer asked whether she blocked out what happened after accusations were made that one victim screamed from the basement.

“No, I have not. And this, no, because there was nothing that went on. Because I was here. It was, like– I mean, I will take you downstairs and let you see the basement. It is not a dungeon. It is not what those kids said,” said Dottie Sandusky.
