Sue Paterno Breaks Silence

The wife of Joe Paterno is coming to her husband's defense in a letter sent to former Penn State football players.

In it, Sue Paterno praises the character of her late husband and legendary Penn State football coach.

She also responds to a scathing report from last July that accused Joe Paterno and others of failing to stop former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky from sexually abusing young boys.

Sue Paterno says she plans to release a review of the Federal Judge Louis Freeh's report on Sunday.

Paterno passed away in January of last year -- months before Sandusky was convicted.
