Southeast bomber's mother: son not a 'monster'

Eric Rudolph's mother says her son's confession to the bombings across the Southeast was "quite a shock," but that she still loves him and will continue to do so "no matter what happens."

"I think each man is destined in life to fulfill whatever he's called to do, and some people, unfortunately, are on the dark side," Pat Rudolph, 77, said in an exclusive interview from Florida that aired Monday on CNN, her first television appearance.

"I don't see him as a monster. I don't think I could," she said.

Now estranged from her son, Pat Rudolph was not in an Atlanta federal courtroom Monday when he was sentenced to life without parole for bombings at the 1996 Olympic Games, a women's clinic that performed abortions and a lesbian nightclub.

The blasts killed one woman and wounded more than 100 others.
