Judge approves delay in Second Mile liquidation

Posted: September 05, 2012

A Centre County, Pa., judge approved a request Tuesday to delay a planned liquidation of the youth charity started by Jerry Sandusky.

The State College-based Second Mile, which was crippled by the arrest and conviction of its founder on child sex-abuse charges, asked the county court to postpone its planned asset transfer last month until all lawsuits from the former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach's victims have been resolved. The move was supported by the victims' attorneys and the state Attorney General's Office, Second Mile chief executive officer Dave Woodle said.

Previously, the charity had announced that it intended to hand over its remaining programs and millions of dollars to the Houston-based Arrow Child and Family Ministries. Sandusky, 68, founded the Second Mile in 1977. He was convicted in June of molesting 10 of the boys he met through the program over a 15 year period. - Jeremy Roebuck
