Transfer of Pa.'s Second Mile assets challenged



Published: Tue, June 26, 2012 @ 5:14 p.m.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A newspaper reports that attorneys for three alleged abuse victims are asking a central Pennsylvania judge not to allow the charity founded by convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky to transfer millions of dollars to a Texas organization.

The Second Mile, once lauded for efforts to help at-risk youth, is now seeking court approval to formally transfer many programs to Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.

Sandusky was convicted last week of 45 counts in his child sex abuse trial. Prosecutors said the retired Penn State assistant football coach met the eight accusers who testified through The Second Mile.

The Centre Daily Times says the attorneys argue that the court’s first priority should be to preserve the charity’s assets so it can pay “current and future liabilities.”

Second Mile is as guilty as Penn State only because they didn't do anything to prevent further children from being molested, AFTER they became aware that it was going on looking the other way. These children are going to become very rich. They deserve every dollar they are going to get. Penn State already has set aside 1.8 Billion dollars for the settlement fund! They also are hoping to settle all claims out of court.
