BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - Dottie Sandusky, the wife of Jerry Sandusky, has been called to the witness stand by her husband's legal team.

Her initial remarks during the start of her testimony Tuesday focused on how she and her husband met.

Dottie Sandusky has stood by her husband, posting his bail, accompanying him to court proceedings and issuing a statement in December that proclaimed his innocence and said that accusers were making up their stories.

She is not charged in the case.

One witness has already testified that he was attacked the Sanduskys' basement and once tried to cry out for help when she was upstairs.

Jerry Sandusky is charged with 51 criminal counts related to 10 alleged victims over a 15-year span.

He has denied the charges.
