Jesse Friedman, Wife Elisabeth Walsh Assert Innocence: 'Blatant Lies' (VIDEO)

Convicted sex offender Jesse Friedman and his wife Elisabeth Walsh joined HuffPost Live Tuesday, just one day after it was announced that his conviction in a 1980s sex abuse scandal would not be overturned.

"I never sexually abused anybody, ever, in any way," Friedman said. "Never, ever. I never saw anybody sexually abuse anybody ever in any way."

Friedman was convicted in 1988 of molesting young boys at his father's computer classes in their home. He was the subject of the documentary "Capturing the Friedmans," which prompted the Nassau County District Attorney's office to review his case. On Monday, the three-year review concluded that there was no evidence to overturn Friedman's conviction.

Friedman's wife also vigorously defended her husband, claiming that the report contained "blatant lies" about his pornography use in prison. Watch her explain to HuffPost Live host Mike Sacks above, and watch the full interview, including "Capturing the Friedmans" director Andrew Jarecki below:
