More than 10 years after his con­vic­tion for sex­u­al­ly assault­ing and groom­ing young boys, dis­graced Penn State foot­ball coach Jer­ry San­dusky, 80, is main­tain­ing his innocence.

In an explo­sive new prison inter­view, San­dusky insists he was “wrong­ful­ly con­vict­ed by per­jured tes­ti­mo­ny” and claims his accusers were “vul­ner­a­ble and sus­cep­ti­ble” peo­ple who were “coached and led” by inves­ti­ga­tors and therapists.

San­dusky, who is cur­rent­ly serv­ing a 30 to 60 year sen­tence, believes his accusers were “incen­tivized” by the mil­lions of dol­lars in pay­outs they received from Penn State. 

He alleges that a key wit­ness, Aaron Fish­er, changed his sto­ry after under­go­ing repressed mem­o­ry ther­a­py, and that the “incon­sis­tent tes­ti­mo­ny” of the oth­er accusers would not stand up in court today.

The for­mer defen­sive coor­di­na­tor for Penn State’s Nit­tany Lions claims he nev­er thought about molest­ing any­one, stat­ing that his wife Dot­tie was his “only part­ner in sex.” 

Dot­tie has stead­fast­ly stood by her hus­band, vis­it­ing him week­ly and insist­ing she would have known if he had com­mit­ted these “heinous crimes.”

San­dusky’s legal team is now seek­ing a new tri­al, argu­ing that the jury should have heard more tes­ti­mo­ny about the con­tro­ver­sial repressed mem­o­ry tech­nique used on the accusers. They believe this evi­dence could exon­er­ate the 80-year-old.

How­ev­er, Penn State has already paid out over $300 mil­lion to San­dusky’s vic­tims and oth­er indi­vid­u­als tied to the scan­dal. His son Matthew also tes­ti­fied against him, claim­ing San­dusky abused him from ages 8 to 17. 

Despite the over­whelm­ing evi­dence, San­dusky main­tains his inno­cence and is hop­ing the lat­est appeal will grant him a new trial.
