Penn State is still reeling from the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal and many are asking "how could his wife not have known?"

Join me Tuesday as you will hear from a wife and mother who had no idea her husband was involved in one of the biggest pedophilia rings in the country!

Darlene Elison and  Author  of " The Predator Next Door", business woman and Child Advocate tells her story!

Her charmed life as wife, mother, philanthropist and successful businesswoman spiraled out of control when she learned that the man to whom she had been married for over 10 years, and with whom she had children, was arrested as part of an FBI sting operation.  He was revealed to be a long-time sexual predator of young boys both in the United States and other countries.  Engulfed by a very public situation that left her emotionally paralyzed, Darlene made the choice to not just survive, but thrive! 

Darlene’s expertise in overcoming obstacles is best illustrated by her story and personal fight against NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association).  Darlene has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show’s “What Pedophiles Don’t Want You to Know,” in a 20/20 interview with Deborah Roberts, and in Dallas’ D Magazine. She also appeared in a special television segment of Dateline NBC’s “To Catch a Predator."

Darlene’s award-winning book, “Predator Next Door…Detect, Protect and Recover from Betrayal” has been honored with the 2009 Independent Publisher Book Award’s (IPPY) Gold Medal in True Crime, as well as the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Award Winner in Autobiography, garnering both national and international attention.
