Lawyer: Sandusky, wife seeking interview

Accused child molester Jerry Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, are looking to sit down with Oprah, "60 Minutes," Barbara Walters or the new "Rock Center" with Brian Williams, according to his lawyer.

The former Penn State defensive coordinator’s attorney, Joe Amendola, has said that the couple is contemplating doing a joint TV interview early next year, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported Tuesday.

Earlier this month, Amendola reportedly invited several reporters to his house for a football-watching party.

An NBC News reporter, who was covering the Sandusky sex abuse scandal, was arrested on a charge of drunk driving early the next morning.

The reporter was among several jockeying for exclusive interviews with Sandusky, who was invited to the party.

To date, Sandusky has twice spoken briefly to reporters but has yet to do a full, sit-down interview with the press.

Last month, Bob Costas grilled the former Penn State assistant football coach on "Rock Center." While being interviewed on "Morning Joe" afterwards, Costas described Sandusky’s rambling answer about whether he was sexually attracted to young boys as being "somewhat odd."

Sandusky also did an online interview with The New York Times, in which he denied the sex abuse charges.
