Sue Paterno Defends Late Husband

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (February 8, 2013)--Sue Paterno defends her late husband in a letter sent Friday to former Penn State players as a "moral, disciplined" man who never twisted the truth to avoid bad publicity.

The wife of the former Penn State coach is fighting back against the accusations against Joe Paterno in the wake of Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal and her campaign started with the letter sent Friday.

She wrote that the family's exhaustive response to former FBI director Louis Freeh's report for the university on the Sandusky child sex abuse case will officially be released to the public at 9 a.m. Sunday on

In July Freeh accused Joe Paterno of covering up allegations against Sandusky, a retired assistant coach.

Sandusky was convicted of abuse last year and the NCAA later levied heavy sanctions against Penn State.

Sue Paterno told former players the family's report is a passionate critique of Freeh's findings, which it calls a "disservice" to Sandusky's victims.
