If convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky has any supporters left, they were noticeably absent from the courthouse steps Friday night when the jury revealed its guilty verdict.
"I would say everyone around here thought he was guilty," local retiree Jenny Andrus told The Huffington Post. Her husband, Bill Andrus, echoed her remarks. "I was absolutely convinced of his guilt. There was just so many [victims],"
Sandusky did not testify on his own behalf, but his wife, Dottie Sandusky, did take the stand. She said she never witnessed any inappropriate contact between her husband and the young boys.
Dottie Sandusky has not been charged in connection with the case, but not everyone believes she was clueless.
"She knew. Come on," Bill Andrus said.
"Dottie had to know. She just didn't want to know,"
Kelly Houp, who lives in Bellefonte, had harsh words for the Sandusky family.
"I knew he was guilty," she said. "All those kids would not lie. Everyone knew he did it. Dottie knew too and she should be hung."
