(State College) -- The Second Mile, a charity for children founded by Jerry Sandusky, is asking a judge for permission to sell its headquarters building in State College.

Judge William Morgan has scheduled a March 28 hearing on the request to sell the two-story structure for $650,000.

The Second Mile was started by the former Penn State assistant football coach in 1977 to help at-risk children.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence after being convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse last year. He maintains he is innocent and is pursuing appeals.

Prosecutors have said Sandusky met most of his victims, if not all of them, through The Second Mile.

In the filing, lawyers say the sales proceeds would pay for victims' claims, programs and legal fees.
