Oct. 9, 2012: In the courtroom, Dottie Sandusky, wife of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, wiped tears from her eyes when he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. In June, Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child sexual abuse, some of which occurred while he was the defensive coordinator for the Penn State college football team.
NBC's "Today" show is about to air an interview with Jerry Sandusky's wife that was recently recorded at her home in State College.
NBC will broadcast the segment that Matt Lauer taped with Dottie Sandusky on Wednesday morning.
In the interview, Dottie Sandusky defends her husband, saying she's sure he didn't "do the horrible crimes that he's convicted of."
Jerry Sandusky is serving a 30 to 60-year sentence in a southwestern Pennsylvania prison. He's maintained his innocence and is awaiting word by the state Supreme Court about whether it'll take his case on appeal.
Dottie Sandusky testified for about 40 minutes for the defense during the 2012 trial that ended in a 45-count conviction.
