Judge approves delay of Second Mile charity transition

Written by The Associated Press | Sep 4, 2012 6:25 PM

(State College) --  The charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky has won court approval to delay its plan to shut down and transfer programs and assets to a Texas ministry.

A judge has given permission to The Second Mile to postpone the transfer plan until the resolution of any damage claims filed by lawyers for Sandusky's victims.

The charity was financially crippled by the child sex abuse scandal involving Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach convicted in June of 45 counts of sexual abuse.

The Second Mile intends to shift programs and millions of dollars in assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.
