Denial

Thirty years.  You’d think he’d be shocked and keep his mouth shut, but no, slime still slithers out of his mouth.  Not words, but garbage.

“You abused the trust of those who trusted you,” said Judge Cleveland at Jerry Sandusky’s sentencing.

Still, Sandusky denied his guilt.  “I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.”

He quoted from a letter written by a boy who called him a “savior for his life” and said that he “brought joy to children through activities like water balloon fights.”

When my former husband was sentenced August 30, 2007 he apologized to his family for being “so stupid,” but never said he was sorry for collecting pornographic photos of little girls on his computer.  He believed, because he never touched a child, but merely collected pornography, he should have been considered innocent.  “Only looking”, in his mind, was harmless.

The senior prosecutor said that Sandusky’s statement was a “masterpiece in banal self delusion”.  How true. Is it impossible for men who are found guilty of illegal and morally abhorrent actions to admit their guilt for what they have done? It seems as if it is.

About writerladyjane

I'm a writer with an almost completed memoir, titled The Invasion. Most of the blog posts relate to the general subject of my memoir and are about my experience of Federal Agents entering my home and arresting my then-husband for child pornography, as well as the following two years of threats on me. There are also posts that are of a lighter nature and some to do with my travels, especially a trip around the world I took with my daughter. I have an MFA in creative writing from Fairfield University and live in Westport, CT.

    It is impossible for all sociopathic or narcissists to see anything but themselves. Everything is justified. Every thing they did, they don’t recognize. I actually know two women with these same kinds of issues. But the sexual predator part seems to be more prevalent in men. Especially men in power.
