Sandusky's wife takes witness stand at trial

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- Dottie Sandusky says her husband never had inappropriate contact with the boys who stayed at their home.
The wife of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky took the stand Tuesday in her husband's child sex abuse trial.
She says their life has always been a busy one, with her husband's coaching schedule and charity work. But when he was home, she says boys from her husband's charity would go with him to football games and then sleep over.
Dottie Sandusky says she remembers most of the men who testified during the trial that Jerry Sandusky abused them.
She says there was no inappropriate contact.
She also says that the basement where the boys would stay wasn't soundproof. That contradicts one man's testimony that he screamed during an assault but couldn't be heard.
