As Jerry Sandusky begins serving his sentence for 45 counts of child sex abuse, In Session's Facebook followers have their own questions about the case. One that keeps popping up is why isn't Dottie Sandusky, the wife of the former Penn State assistant coach, facing charges.  

Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to a minimum of 30 years. He will get his first chance at parole when he is 98 years old.

On Wednesday, CNN obtained letters Jerry and Dottie Sandusky sent Judge John Cleland ahead of Tuesday's hearing.
