"I think Jerry was found guilty before he ever went to trial" – Dottie Sandusky to Jason Carroll

Almost exactly two years since Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 counts of sexual abuse of young boys, CNN's Jason Carroll sits down with Dottie Sandusky for a face to face interview.

Having been married to the former Penn State assistant football coach for 37 years, Dottie Sandusky remains unwavering in her support of her husband, telling Carroll "he's always been truthful to me."

"I know who he is, I know he is," says Sandusky, insisting she never once suspected her husband of any improper behavior.

According to Dottie Sandusky, the 70-year-old man is in a cell 23 hours per day, Monday through Friday, and 24 hours per day on the weekend. "I try to cheer him up," she says of the couple's visits, "but usually he cheers me up instead of me cheering him up."

Sandusky denies guilt in jailhouse tape

In an audio statement made while he sits in a jail cell awaiting sentence, convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky says that while others make him out to be a monster, he is a falsely accused man who will continue to protest his innocence.

"They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart," the former coach at Penn State says. "In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts."

Sandusky co-counsel Karl Rominger confirmed the audio statement is legitimate.

"If he wants to say that, God bless the First Amendment," Rominger said.

Penn State University's ComRadio first aired the audio clip on its website Monday evening.

Sandusky, a 68-year-old former defensive coordinator who ran a charity after he retired from coaching, faces up to life in prison. He is scheduled to be the final speaker at a sentencing hearing Tuesday.
