Dottie Sandusky: Cunt of Bar Bush proportion, calls her son liar and thief

Dottie Sandusky lashes out at youngest son in letter

Jerry Sandusky's wife, in a letter to the judge deciding her husband's fate, stood by him as a "man of very high morals" and trashed their adopted son for saying that he, too, had been sexually abused by his father.

"People need to know what kind of person he is," Dorothy "Dottie" Sandusky wrote of son Matt, 33, in the document, sent two weeks after her husband's conviction and obtained by The Inquirer this week.

The letter, dated July 9, characterizes Matt Sandusky as a mentally ill liar and thief and asks Judge John M. Cleland to discount her youngest son's allegations in determining a sentence for her husband.

It was one of several similar missives Cleland considered before sentencing the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Tuesday to 30 to 60 years in prison for the serial sexual abuse of 10 adolescent boys.

And although jurors did not learn of Matt Sandusky's accusations until after delivering their verdict in June and his alleged abuse played no part in his father's sentencing this week, the letter his mother penned laid bare the painful family divisions.

"They said the same kinds of things about all of Jerry Sandusky's victims," said lawyer Matt Casey, one of a team of lawyers that represents Matt Sandusky and several other accusers of the former coach. "It's part and parcel of this whole tragedy that these young men have been continually victimized by their abuser."

Dorothy and Jerry Sandusky have not spoken to their youngest son since he publicly accused his father of sexual abuse in the middle of his trial, the former coach's lawyers said this week. Matt Sandusky did not attend the sentencing Tuesday but his lawyers said he still planned to sue his adoptive father in civil court.

Calls to Matt and Dorothy Sandusky were not returned Wednesday.

In her letter, Dorothy Sandusky described her son's shift from onetime ally to his father's accuser as just one in a decades-long series of betrayals from the man she and her husband welcomed into their home as a troubled 17-year-old.

"We have forgiven him many times for all he has done to our family, thinking that he was changing his life," she wrote. "But he would always go back to stealing and lies."

Before his father's trial, Matt, one of the Sandusky family's six adopted children, had denied on several occasions that he had ever been abused, and he originally agreed to testify for the former coach's defense.

But hours after jurors began deliberating Jerry Sandusky's fate, the 33-year-old's lawyers dropped a bombshell, publicly disclosing that their client had turned state's witness and was now alleging that he had been abused.

Though he never testified at trial, Matt Sandusky explained his motivation in a taped interview with investigators leaked to the media in June.

"I came forward for different reasons," he said. "I mean, for my family, so that they can really have closure and see what the truth actually is."

But which family he was referring to remains unclear.

Matt Sandusky was born Matt Heichel, and he met Jerry Sandusky as an 8-year-old foster child with a troubled home life. He moved into the former coach's house nine years later and was formally adopted at 18. He has not yet stated publicly when his adoptive father allegedly began to sexually abuse him. Matt Sandusky's biological mother, Debra Long, who still lives not far from the Centre County courthouse, suspected something wasn't right early on in the relationship.

Jerry Sandusky took an interest in her son the same way many of the former coach's other accusers later described. They met at the Second Mile, the charity from which the elder Sandusky culled all of his victims. They attended football games and worked out together. "I would sit back and watch when Jerry would show up, how excited Matt was," Long told ABC News in an interview last November. "And then, as time went on, I would watch the same kid hide behind the bedroom door and say, 'Mom, tell him I'm not home.' "

Matt moved in with the Sanduskys after burning down a barn in 1995. But his trouble seemed to grow worse there, according to his interview with investigators.

He ran away from the couple a year later. At one point, police responded to the house to investigate him for stealing. About four months after moving in, he attempted suicide.

In his interview with investigators over the summer, Matt Sandusky characterized his acting out as a cry for help during a period of sustained abuse.

"It just became very uncomfortable," he said on the recording. "With the showering, with the hugging, with the rubbing, with the - just talking to me. The way he spoke. . . . Anything, any time we were alone."

Dorothy Sandusky offered another explanation for her son's behavior in her letter to Cleland: "He has been diagnosed with bipolar, but he refuses to take his medicine."

Her son's lawyer declined to discuss Wednesday whether Matt Sandusky had been diagnosed with a mental illness.

Whatever the cause, his decision to publicly accuse his father dealt the former coach's defense a devastating blow at trial, his lawyers have said.

Court transcripts of the proceeding reveal an intense back-and-forth in the judge's chambers once Matt Sandusky's cooperation with prosecutors was disclosed.

Jerry Sandusky planned to testify in his own defense. His lawyers feared that prosecutors could call his son as a rebuttal witness. Ultimately, they decided to keep the former coach off the stand. "He always wanted to tell people his side of the allegations," defense lawyer Joseph Amendola is quoted as saying in the transcript. "However, the potential evidence, whether true or not, was so devastating."


Letter Excerpts

Dorothy Sandusky on July 9 sent a letter to Judge John M. Cleland to give him her view of her husband days after his conviction:

"I have known Jerry for 47 years and he has always been truthful with me, even if it hurt."

"Jerry always put others before himself and always wanted to make each person feel special no matter who they were."

"Jerry was a wonderful father to our six children . . .. Our house was a fun house with lots of games, picnics, laughs, and caring. There were always lots of people around whether it was friends or our kids, Second Mile kids or neighbors."

"I never saw him do anything inappropriate to any child, if I had, as a Mother and Grandmother I would have taken action."

"I use to believe in our protective system, but now have no faith in the police or legal system. To think that they can lie and get by with the lies. The press has been unbelievable. People who have not met us are writing untruths."

"I pray each day that God will give me the strength to do what is right and that I will be able to hold our family together."

[quote]The letter, dated July 9, characterizes Matt Sandusky as a mentally ill liar

When a child is repeatedly raped by his father they do often develop mental health issues. So Dottie is probably telling the truth on this one issue.

by Anonymousreply 210/11/2012

Except for the liar part, r2.

Really, is she that numb and dumb? This kid sounds exactly like the vulnerable, troubled child Jerry hand selected. And the way he's lashing out now is classic behavior of sexual victims.

And now those in denial, in this case the boy's adopted mother, accuses him.

Really, this is like a textbook case of child molestation. This is REVOLTING. She should be in jail with her husband.

by Anonymousreply 310/11/2012

Jerry's six-figure salary and big retirement package has disappeared so Dottie is pissed off at the perpetrators of this horror, i.e. the victims. You're correct, R3, Dottie is in this mess up to her eyeballs. She needs to be locked up, too.

It's almost like he was being groomed all those years (and probably molested as well, no doubt) and the Sandusky's took him in when they felt he was at (sorry) just the right age for further abuse. What is the age of consent over there? I bet it is 17.

Jesus Christ. I hate kiddie fuckers. Dottie is as big a piece of shit as her kiddie fucking bastard of a husband.

Comparing Babs Bush and Dottie is not right. If Babs' husband was a kiddie fucker, y'all know danred well Babs would have killed him and cast his dead body in the ocean waters near their vacation home on the east coast or maybe even in Texas maybe. We all know this. Babs is a cunt with a heart, Dottie is just a piece of shit on Earth who should be brought up on charges herself.

Dottie willingly and knowingly enable institutionalized kiddie fucking to be allowed in her home for her husband's sick benefit. Why can't she be brought up on charges for something? I am not a lawyer or anything.

by Anonymousreply 610/11/2012

I agree with r6. There must be some charge she can be held on.

by Anonymousreply 710/11/2012

Dottie needs to get the blinders off, Jerry married her because she was either so dumb as not to realize what he is or she went for the money and position in society. When she talks about family, she never really had a family and I agree that she belongs in prison, she was an enabler at the least and co-conspirator at the worst.

Not really.

But maybe he IS a liar and a thief.

He comes from a broken home and would probably be fucked up even if he had never met Jerry Sandusky. His biological brother is a convicted murderer who is currently in jail.

by Anonymousreply 1010/11/2012

I agree with r10. This just muddies up the allegations against her husband. It doesn't make anything Jerry Sandusky did less true or less culpable. The son could have been molested/raped AND also be a liar or "bad person." It is true that he could have turned out poorly absent the abuse and it surely contributed to his being majorly fucked up. This bitch's assertions simply attempt to take the heat away from her pedophile husband. She is as delusional and fucked up as her husband, though.

by Anonymousreply 1110/11/2012

r10 = JoePa, from beyond the grave.

Shithead, do you know anything about this case? Sandusky had met him as a child from the Second Mile, which is pretty much now considered to be an all-you-can rape boy buffet for Sandusky. Sandusky went right after the troubled kids that nobody would ever believe - and wouldn't you know it, they're trying to make him a liar now? If he adopted him when he was 18, he was well sucked in to Sandusky's web and he would have been 18 in the late 90's when all these other victims were known to have been molested.

This is hardly a shock and I believe it's true Sandusky molested his own adopted son.

If you're a child molester and you have your choice of hundreds of boys to molest, are you going to go after the stable, well-to-do kids or are you going to go after the troubled bad kids who will have nobody to trust them or guide them but you?

This poor guy was only brought into the Sandusky family for one reason. Think about that and try not to puke.

"Dottie" is protecting a pedophile network. There are more hiding, and "Dottie" is just doing what she is supposed to, serving her masters. Her husband is a sacrificial goat. "Dottie" is dancing as fast as she can, so she will be provided for by those higher up, the ones with planes, armies, money. Google "Franklin Credit Union Scandal" if you think I'm exaggerating in any way.

The only time he and Dottie ever had sex was that Halloween she dressed up as a church choir boy.

by Anonymousreply 1510/11/2012

My take on her is classic denial. To her, the truth is more that she can stand so she uses whatever she has to deny it. Not so hard to understand why. After all, would you like to admit that your husband of decades was sexually abusing boys all those decades. Perhaps her denial started years ago and is therefore even more firmly entrenched.

[R13]- Bingo! What creeps and pedos were financing the proposed $2MM dorm complex in Happy Valley (jokes write themselves)? Instead of Happy Valley in BFE, why not build a fancy boys home in Pittrsburgh or Philly w/easy access to the public AND nearby high crime areas?

Who was giving ol' Jerry access to private jets for private times w/his victims? There is more to this story that we will never know.

Because State College is smack dab in the center of PA and you could get Philly and Pittsburgh kids since they were equal distance. And for a young child from the rough areas of those cities to get a trip to Penn State would seem like a dream come true (i.e. make them more vulnerable).

Why would they adopt him when he was 17?

Hey r20, I was the OP of this thread. Thanks for bumping it!

Dottie Sandusky is such a CUNT, and I can tell you agree with me because you bumped it.

"If Babs' husband was a kiddie fucker, y'all know danred well Babs would have killed him and cast his dead body in the ocean waters near their vacation home on the east coast or maybe even in Texas maybe. We all know this."

We know no such thing. She looked the other way through all of her husband's various "Jennifers," do you think she'd suddently develop a conscience if he was doing boys instead? She stays where the money is. In that sense she's a true Bush since the Bush family has been in bed with the Bin Ladens for decades.

As for Lady Sandusky, she should have been prosecuted for aiding and abetting, but then, so should so many others at Penn.

Agree that Dottie is protecting the pedo network everyone tip-toed around in Penn State and Happy Valley.

What about that prep school for boys (Hershey?) for needy children? A lot of interlocking relationships between that and Second Mile and Penn State boosters.

There was a scandal there, too.

And, that guy in Philly who was always doing good deeds for boys - helping with homework, I think - ended up a pedo with Second Mile connections.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a Pennsylvania Pedo Association - We help troubled boys; we only rape the cute blond ones.

by Anonymousreply 2701/02/2013

Dottie's mental state is pretty fascinating. She's got to be in deep, deep denial. (Any psychologists know technically what's going on?).

And, it makes perfect sense. It's a form of self-preservation. The abuse was so widespread and went on for so long that if she allows her self to acknowledge that it actually happened, her world is completely destroyed. She'd then have to face up to the fact that everything she thought she knew about people, about her universe is false. She would have to confront the possibility that she is partially responsible for being such a do-nothing, delusional, head-in-the-sand idiot.
