Sandusky professes innocence, vows to fight

Posted:

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Jerry Sandusky says he's innocent and vows to keep fighting in a recorded statement broadcast by a student-run radio station at Penn State.
    
The statement was aired Monday, a day before the former assistant football coach was scheduled to be sentenced on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
    
One of his lawyers says he would stake his life on the legitimacy of the statement.
    
In it, Sandusky says that in his heart, he knows he didn't do what he calls "these alleged disgusting acts." He says he's the victim of Penn State, investigators, civil attorneys, the media and others.
    
Mike Fliegelman, student general manager of Penn State Com Radio, says the statement was recorded at the county jail in Bellefonte.
    
Defense attorney Karl Rominger initially said he wasn't aware of the recording. Early Tuesday he confirmed to The Associated Press that it was authentic.
