STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -

On the eve of his sentencing, former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky made a statement that was aired Monday night on ComRadio of Penn State, saying in his heart "I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts."

According to the ComRadio website, the former coach's statement aired at 6 p.m.

"I'm responding to the worst loss of my life. First, I looked at myself. Over and over, I asked why? Why didn't we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? What's the purpose? Maybe it will help others; some vulnerable children who could be abused, might not be because of all the publicity," a transcript of the statement read on the ComRadio website.

The transcript continued to read:

"In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner that was after marriage. Our love continues. A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything."

ComRadio features the work of Penn State students from the College of Communications, according to the website.

You can read and listen to the full statement on the ComRadio website.
