Two weeks before the judge sentenced Jerry Sandusky to thirty years, Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, wrote a letter trying to influence the judge about how much time Jerry should spend in prison.
“I was supposed to be David but failed to pick up the sling shot. Goliath won, and I must deal with the outcome. Just like preparing for an athletic contest, I am trying to prepare for what comes.”
Sandusky also said in the letters that he virtually blamed his adopted son, Matt, for his conviction. He said that when Matt “switched sides,” Sandusky gave up his plan to defend himself on the stand.
