Sandusky charity seeks to delay transfer

The Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky wants to postpone its plan to transfer programs and assets to a youth ministry.

The interim president and CEO of The Second Mile tells The Associated Press that the charity agreed to ask for a postponement after opposition from some of Sandusky’s sex abuse victims.

David Woodle said Monday that The Second Mile, the state attorney general’s office and victims’ lawyers are filing a joint petition in Centre County Orphans’ Court.

The charity was financially crippled by the child sex abuse scandal involving Sandusky, its founder and onetime public face.

It had sought court approval to shift programs and millions of dollars in assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.
