Dottie Sandusky is Getting Her Money Back

In an order filed earlier this afternoon, Judge John Cleland granted the release of Jerry Sandusky’s bail assets to his wife Dottie.

Sandusky’s attorney Joe Amendola filed a motion earlier this morning requesting that the $250,000 in bail assets be released, as Jerry Sandusky satisfied the bail agreement to show up for his trial. When he was arrested, the Sandusky family posted $50,000 in cash and $200,000 in real estate assets up for bail so Sandusky could be released from prison until his eventual conviction.

Judge John Cleland responded by granting the request, and ordered that the $50,000, as well as the $200,000 lien on the Sandusky residence, be returned to Dottie Sandusky.

It was a strictly procedural move, but important none the less. Sandusky will appear in court on Tuesday for his sentencing, where he is expected to speak on his behalf.
