Bail put up by Sandusky's wife is returned to her

Posted: October 05, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A judge Thursday granted a request by former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky that the court return to his wife, Dottie, the $50,000 she put up for his bail before he was convicted this summer of sexually abusing nearly a dozen boys.

Judge John Cleland signed the order that refunded the bail and released the court's hold on the couple's home, as a promissory note against the home had been put up as $200,000 collateral.

Jerry Sandusky, 68, has been in a county jail since his June conviction on 45 counts of child sexual abuse against 10 boys, some on campus. He is expected to get a lengthy state prison term when sentenced next week, but he maintains his innocence, and defense attorney Joe Amendola has said he will appeal. - AP
